DESIGN STRATEGIES

MALI museum extension, Lima

How can one resolve a corner of metropolitan scale where 2 highways , 2 future metro lines and 2 metropolitan parks converge precisely where an underground museum extension is planned ? We propose a burried- yet-exposed atrium building that creates a thoroughfare at level -1, thus connecting all infrastructure with one simple gesture. Architecture + Infrastructure = Infratecture.  With Buro Happold Engineering.
