The new building is arranged as a series of interconnected rectangular volumes, while a curving-formed glass ‘lantern’ emerges at the center in contrast to the rest of the industrially-referential facility. this distinctive element shelters the museum’s atrium and creates a site organization similar to that of a traditional milanese courtyard block. David Chipperfield explains ‘given that [the surrounding buildings] are all industrial, we felt that [the street facing elevations] were not façades. actually, the interesting thing was to create an internal façade, in that you go into the building and then – like in a milan courtyard – you would find the façade.’

Around this, the architects designed a series of boxy buildings, featuring a standing-seam cladding of zinc-titanium.
