Spanish Energy Museum


Spanish-based design agency Arquitecturia has deliberately designed the new Museo dell'Energia (Energy Museum) in Catalonia to look as modern as possible in order to reflect its purpose as a centre dedicated to educating the public about diverse sources of energy.

The museum has been constructed with a concave entrance that directs attention towards the natural beauty of the neighbouring Ebro River and Mediterranean landscape, while the other side of the building features rectilinear elevations designed to screen out the industrial area of the nearby urban centre.

The black and white steel colour scheme of the exterior flows seamlessly into the interior galleries and open-air courtyard, creating a sense of movement that is also reflective of the space’s purpose.
