In the heart of the Spanish Colonial city of Aguascalientes lies a surprisingly massive new art museum and cultural hub. A prime example of ‘adaptive reuse’, the museum is an architectural experience – even before witnessing the art.
Formerly the site of an old railway workshop, remnants of the original tracks can be seen throughout the museum’s glass-paneled floors and echoed again in the vast steel, brick, and concrete interiors. But rather than feel sterile or uninviting, the exhibition spaces feel awe-inspiring and intimate, despite the colossal space.
