Aragonese Centre for Contemporary Art. Headquarters of the Beulas Foundation

Rafael Moneo


It was proposed to build an 'undulating and fluid' volume with an undulating profile of great height surrounded in its full perimeter by a series of small server volumes, between which entrance to the great hall takes place where the works are displayed that constitute the legacy of the Foundation. The texture, colour and morphology of this great built body recall the Figlos mallets, characteristic geologic formations near the spot where the new building stands. A perimeter moat recomposes the primitive irrigation systems of the estate and also facilitates the evacuation of rainwater from the new building.
