Project will double exhibition space for Fundación/Colección Jumex 

David Chipperfield Architects has been appointed to design a new 4,000 m2 building for Fundación/Colección Jumex in Mexico City. The project will provide more than twice the exhibition space of the existing facilities in Ecatepec, to the North of the city, and will move the collection to a more accessible, central location.

The triangular site forms part of a larger masterplan for this area of the city, which will also include the new Soumaya Museum.

The four storey building will include a number of terraces and small courtyards that will bring daylight to the gallery spaces.

Construction is scheduled to begin in March 2010, with completion in July 2011 coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Grupo Jumex.

La Colección Jumex is one of the most important private collections of contemporary art in Latin America, comprising more than 2000 pieces from prominent international and emerging artists.
