Museu Carmen Thyssen, Sant Feliu de Guixols

First Prize

The Madrid practice of Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano have won first place in the competition to build a museum in San Felíu de Guíxols (Girona) to house part of Carmen Thyssen's art collection, joining those already existing in Madrid, Málaga, and Andorra.

Nieto Sobejano's scheme carried the day over those drawn up by the other four teams shortlisted: Camps Felip Arquitectura + Tuñón Arquitectos; Martinez Lapeña-Torres Arquitectos + Adriá Orriols Camps; Fuses-Viader Arquitectes; and Calderon-Folch Studio + AV62 Arquitectos. .

The 4,040-square-meter home for a collection of 19th- and 20th-century Catalan painting will occupy a monastery to be restored and refurbished accordingly, with respect and in a way that connects the architectural complex to the landscape through a garden raised over the heart of the new institution: a multipurpose space leading into the historical building and to the exterior garden. The expansion pursues the architectural typology of the cloister that never came to be built in this monastery.
