The MUSAC building (Castile-León Museum of Contemporary Art) is a splendid exhibition centre, intelligently designed to provide a showcase for avant-garde art, of which it is itself a prime example.

The unique design of its floor plan, which recalls the geometric shapes of Roman mosaics, is basically formed by two polygons, one square and one diamond shaped, arranged around an interconnected system of courtyards, with independent exhibition rooms of different sizes and characteristics which are perfectly suited to any type of display. These spaces (around 4,000 m2 in total) are designed in such a way as to provide a range of visual perspectives and longitudinal, transversal and diagonal vanishing points, and are enclosed with 500 prefabricated beans and walls of white concrete.
The most eye-catching features are the main façade, which is composed of 3,400 pieces of coloured glass –inspired by the stained-glass window known as the 'Falconer' in León cathedral–, and the two vast skylights in the ceiling of the main lobby.
