Museo Jumex was the first building in Latin America designed by renowned British architect Sir David Chipperfield. It was conceived in response to its surroundings and local context, incorporating domestically sourced materials. In addition to exhibition galleries, the museum features public spaces designed as meeting places and leisure areas that complement the visitor’s experience.
The spaces are distributed on five levels:
a) levels 2 and 3, devoted exclusively to the exhibition of artworks;
b) level 1: a multipurpose space that functions as an auditorium for academic activities or as an exhibition space, surrounded by a terrace;
c) ground level: the lobby, ticket office, café and public plaza; and
d) basement: the museum’s library and store, which features a site-specific stone floor by British artist Martin Creed entitled Work No. 1051 (2010), part of the Colección Jumex.
