Since its construction in 1732, the Blockhaus, situated on the banks of the Elbe River as it flows through Dresden, is one of the key historical buildings in the city. In the competition decided in 2018, the project designed by Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano was the one chosen to address the institutional objective of opening the Marzona legacy to the public. Aside from harboring the collection – with works of different artistic movements of the 20th century – the proposal by the Madrid studio represents the dialogue between memory and avant-garde. The bold stone wall of the old building hides the new central piece of the ar-chive: a large concrete cube that floats in the air.
