Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art MACBA

Richard Meier with F.J. Ramos i Associats designed the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona at the Plaça dels Àngels, which opened in 1995. For some reason it has become a sort of pilgrimage site for skate boarders, and even has its own skating trick.
The large glazed southern facade has taken on an interesting colored geometric pattern that glows at night. The rest of the structure takes on a pure white modernist form, or gridded. Flying and cantilevered rectangular columns making up layers of structure that intrude light into the interior are Meier's trademark, but gentle curves also make certain spaces more intimately involved.
The lengthy building is an interesting opposite to the nearby Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona and stone structures. The diversity of scale and texture throughout Barcelona can be seen through this building. The front ramp hall takes the place of central grand stairway, as light filters through it into each space.
