Cuban architects show vision of a Museum of Contemporary Art

Havana, Jul 23 (Prensa Latina) An exhibition of the work of five teams of Cuban architects shows the aspirations of the community of Cuban creators and intellectuals to build a Museum of Contemporary Art in Havana.

The exhibition is entitled “From the real museum to the imagined museum” and brings together the talents of the C-León, U+D Arquitectura, A.R.O, AD Urbis, H(R)G_Arquitectura, Apropia and D Cero studios.

According to the National Museum of Fine Arts, where the exhibition will take place, the project advocates “the concept that the first museum object is its own architecture, which will play a prominent role in the urban context.”

It also highlights “the plural conception of projects”, in coherence with current aesthetic languages, without ignoring the “challenges and controversies” on show architecture associated with large museums.

The Museum of Contemporary Art of Havana (MAC/Havana) has an implicit design to show the value of the building as a catalyst for the context in which it is located, along with its purpose as a reservoir of art.

The exhibition recognizes the work of the architect as a creator and highlights the urgency of returning this discipline to its historical place, as the mother of all the arts, according to the Museum of Fine Arts, which highlights a space dedicated to Art Schools.

The exhibition is also a wake-up call “so as not to abandon the imperative will we have to create the Museum”, since the context indicates that this issue is an urgent need.
