    Description :

    The culmination of the stroll across the Montjuic is undoubtedly a visit to the Fundacio Miro, opened in 1975. Rarely have museum architecture, landscape, exhibits and presentation been so symbiotically fused as in this building. Using the cubic architecture of the Balearics, Sert designed a complex which creates the ideal surroundings for the work of Miro.

    Miro’s works—with their sparkling colors and droll forms—contrast effectively with the straightforward outlined and whitewashed cubes of the exhibition space and with the brilliant blue of the sky. Inside and out, the rooms and courtyards of the Fundacio Miro are interwoven in a manner similar to the nearby exhibition pavilion of Mies van der Rohe.
