Centre Pompidou of Málaga

ON356 - OCT 2015

This spring saw the inauguration in the Port of Málaga of the first outdoor site of the Centre Pompidou, a glass cube which in its underground part has since been displaying 93 works by renowned 19th- and 20th-century artists.

In this building, promoted by Málaga City Hall and designed by its Architecture and Infrastructures Department, transparent cement by Italcementi has been used, a perfect material to give the underground space the ability to filter natural light, enhancing the view of the works on display but filtering the light to prevent any photochemical effects that might affect them adversely. They are 105 prefab panels of white i.light with plastic resins, installed in only one week, which have succeeded in creating an external shell of more than 250m2, generating a light well underneath the glass cube.

The cladding of floors, ceilings and walls and the creation of fixed interior furniture in the Pompidou was designed by the Gubia Group. With bamboo and wood they have succeeded in creating a welcoming environment for the centre’s communal spaces. The entire entrance floor has been clad in bamboo, as has the auditorium, which boasts a unique acoustic ceiling. The same material has also given shape to all the fit-outs and fixed furniture such as ticket offices, tables, desks or display units.
