Located in the historical center of the Puebla city in Mexico, the Amparo Museum was rehabilitated and resized by the practice of TEN Arquitectos and it contains several colonial buildings that are historically and architecturally priceless.
The museum displays 4800 pre-Hispanic pieces from different sources and there is also a collection of baroque art and one of contemporary art which has works by the most important Mexican artists. TEN Arquitectos worked on the architectonic modernization and also on an updated way of displaying and visiting the works of art through the addition of a vestibule so that each collection can be visited independently.
New temporary exhibition spaces were also created so that the social, educational and cultural services of the museum are increased. The media systems extant along with the electromechanical ones also needed modernization, since the age of the museum left it quite out of touch with the most recent innovations.
Also the visitors will be offered the opportunity to climb the roof of the museum and see the wonderful view and new terraces and gardens are also going to make the exterior a bit more natural.
