Exhibition Boxes as a new concept to preserve and exhibit masterpieces

Processes: the XXII Century Museum


Exhibition Boxes as a new concept to preserve and exhibit masterpieces
Future architecture is about the life of buildings, placing value on processes instead of forms. We need spaces to feeling more creative. Future architecture is a new ‘more with less’: it is the society making a better world to use it

This idea for future architecture starts from a real problem: a national museum in Spain with a huge collection of masterpieces and lack of visitors. Due to the little urban space, the historic buildings and the need of a dynamic area in the ancient city a new concept of exhibition is created: the Exhibition Boxes.

The museum of the next century is a changing space and it is part of the urban life. Masterpieces go out the museum because they belong to society. The concept of Exhibition Boxes creates a new reality for museums. They are archives in which we can protect and preserve our art but this art is organized in boxes that contain whole universes in relation with masterpieces. When the boxes are opened, they show the art to the general public who visit the museum. This system is also a great practice to move the boxes to other museums in different cities and make the local collections of art known in other parts of the world.
