New Wing: MACRO


The new wing of MACRO — the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome — reveals how existing spaces can be annexed, reshaping rather than rebuilding structures to create more useful areas. The bright red wing, designed by French architect Odil Decq, sits inside an existing part of the museum creating a dynamic addition to the older building.

The old and new spaces are connected by metal walkways that extend into the new exhibition hall and roof terrace. This example of adding to existing structures is similar to The Seed at Sakip Sabanci Museum in Turkey.
