Bringing to light the other face of the Museu Picasso

The Museu Picasso is one of the places of Barcelona which attracts more people. As well as offering clear cultural contents of unarguable recognition, it is also a place of urban reference where the city exhibits, explains and represents. A building where many periods and architectural styles of major historic and patrimonial interest live together.   The lighting of the building on the one hand should provide support to the natural light during the day in those spaces of gloom, and during the night place the building on the map of the nighttime landscape of the city, showing off the beauty and ...
