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) Ground floor, where you can find the lobby, library, ticket office, café and public plaza.
b) Floors 1, 2 and 3, devoted exclusively to the exhibition of artworks.
c) A terrace, on the first floor, that functions as a forum por public activities, or a reunion and rest area.
d) Basement, which is also employed as a gallery space and features a site-specific stone floor by British artist Martin Creed entitled Work No. 1051 (2010), part of the Colección Jumex.
