The Museum's "main entry is framed by an overhanging screen of planar elements and rectilinear windows. Linked visually to this clearly defined entry by a transparent, horizontally articulated glass screen, the Museum's Special Exhibition gallery is enclosed within a billowing shell. This lyrical wing resonates with the contemporary spirit of the Museum's collection and the expressive forms of the enclave's historic character. These elements front a white enameled panel wall, which runs the length of the building's spine. From the entry lobby, visitors ascend a vertical ramp within the triple-height Atrium. This extensively glazed atrium affords broad views of the Placa, orienting the visitor and mediating between the Museum's most public space and the volumes of the galleries." -- Reference
