Author: Bague, Aleix (photos)
Price: Not Available
ISBN: 9788434312555
Description: Barcelona: Poligrafa, 2011. 21cm., pbk., 79pp. illus. most in color. Publisher's summary : Published in Poligrafa's new series on museum architecture, this volume is devoted to the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona--widely known by its acronym "MACBA"--designed by American architect Richard Meier (born 1934). Located in the Raval neighborhood of Barcelona, MACBA forges a dialogue with the historic urban quarter. The neighborhood's labyrinthine streets are reflected in the building's organization, most notably in the main entry, as well as a parallel pedestrian walkway that connects the museum's rear garden to a recently created plaza in front of the museum. As befits an institution devoted to modern and contemporary art, the museum synthesizes the striking innovation of its rationalist architecture and the accrued history of its context. Offering detailed information on every aspect of the project, this publication features a full-page photographic essay by renowned Spanish photographer Aleix Bagué, as well as an in-depth interview with Meier.
