Goldfinger serait-il passé par Guimaraes au Portugal ? Toujours est-il que le nouveau musée des Arts est entièrement doré. Le bâtiment, fait de plusieurs structures carrées, à différents niveaux, entièrement recouvert de tubes de cuivre doré, est imposant sans être lourd. Il invite à l’approche et au toucher. En contraste, l’intérieur est d’une épure parfaite, blanc pour les espaces d’exposition et noir pour les espaces interactifs (salles de projection par exemple). Une réussite.


This is not Goldfinger’s house, but it could have been. The new Guimaraes museum, in Portugal, is entirely covered with brass tubes that give this incredible golden colour. Structured with several different square buildings, each at a different height, it is imposing but not heavy. And you really feel an urge to move forward, to touch him. And the contrast with the inside is even more interesting as the choice has been made to keep the interior either white (for the exhibitions rooms) or black (for the interactive rooms), in the purest possible way. A great building.
