Designed by FR-EE Fernando Romero Enterprise,  building for MADU – small museum for a collection of Art, Design and Urbanism,  is situated in a park in Mexico City and is a piece of art itself. Due to the fact that the building is shaped as a deformed sphere it perfectly fits into surrounding, co-existing with it in pure harmony.

The form of the Museum is derived from the construction strategy: undulating concrete slabs are stacked so that the peaks of the lower curves connect with the valleys of the upper, opening organic spaces in a helicoidal organization. The characteristics of the construction strategy forms a fluid path of circulation that increases vertically as it winds around the periphery of the building.

The building is designed in recycled materials and reused objects; therefore defining a new destination for objects in the end of their lives. The façade openings actively react to its solar orientation and the amount of light for each room is optimized. The façade openings react to its solar orientation as well has the ideal amount of light for each room’s content. The building sits in the perimeter of a park and the spatial pocket are oriented radially so each room has a particular view over the park or the city.

The displayed object of the museum are mostly small and don’t require very large places, so they are organized as intimate, smaller rooms in specific groups. In order to have an integrated, overall solution, a single slab is disposed so there is no need for columns and beams, which leaves the space free and clean, allowing a diversity in circulation that makes a free, fluid experience to its visitors.
