Mansilla+Tuñón - Royal Collections Museum, Madrid, currently under construction. Context; surely to become one of the great contemporary museums. Via.

“On a site with such a complex cultural history, to add yet another cultural reference risks trivializing that very history.

In this way, Mansilla + Tuñon allow the project to achieve the dignity it requires while still accommodating the complex needs of the modern museum…”
