The Lima Art Museum New Contemporary Art Wing is conceived to form a spatial counterpoint to the historical Exposition Palace. The solid and void rhythm of the Exposition Palace’s west façade is projected to the site to form corresponding light wells and sunken gardens. The rhythmic meandering forms create a strong dialogue between the two structures; they connect without touching. The echoes of the Exposition Palace resonate throughout the new extension at varying scales and levels. Looking up from the new galleries, the visitors will see the framed views of each corresponding bay of the historical façade. Coming from the metro station, into the lower plaza, visitors will see the grandeur of the palace stretching the entire length of the promenade.
