Francisco Mangado: V&A Design Studies

  • Comment

Projects by Francisco Mangado’s practice include the Ávila Congress and Exhibitions Municipal Centre, the Álava Archaeology Museum and the Spanish Pavilion at the 2008 Zaragoza Expo

An angular, corridor-like structure encases the north, west and south borders of the site, creating a peaceful, cloistered circulation space around the perimeter. The corridor is constructed from glass, which offers a new framing of the museum’s historic facade. The floor of the central courtyard – intended as a tranquil gathering space – is tiled with geometric mosaics inspired by African textiles. The new exhibition space is column-free and provides a blank canvas for numerous exhibition configurations.
