Let’s have some more architecture, shall we?
Take a look at these rusty cylinders. This is the Interactive Museum of the History of Lugo, a place for images and films about the historic Roman province in modern-day Spain. Designed by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, the museum is largely underground, but cylindrical towers of weathered steel rise up from the ground. A spiralling staircase leads visitors down into a sunken courtyard through which they can enter the museum.
I realize this design – rusty as it is – may not appeal to everyone, but I think there is something of beauty here. Besides, the weathered metal makes me think of times past and ancient civilizations – and it is a museum of history, isn’t it?
