Andalucia’s Museum of Memory
Alberto Campo Baeza has designed the Andalucia’s Museum of Memory located in Granada, Spain, a museum that wishes to transmit the entire history of Andalucia.
They proposed a podium building that rises three stories so that the upper floor coincides with the podium of the Caja Granada building next door.
Everything is arranged around a central courtyard, in elliptical form in which circular ramps rise, connecting the three levels and creating a very interesting spatial tension. The dimensions of the elliptical courtyard have been taken from the courtyard of the Palace of Charles the V in the Alhambra.
A strong vertical piece emerges, the same height and width as the main building of the Caja Granada, that appears before the highway that circles Granada as a gate to the city.
