Images released for new gallery in the Portuguese city of Boticas

The new Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso, designed by New York based Louise Braverman is a sustainable art museum, to be built in 2010 in the northern Portuguese town of Boticas. Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso will exhibit the artwork of the renowned living Portuguese artist, Nadir Afonso.

Formerly a practicing architect who early in his career worked for Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer, Nadir Afonso has been both making art and writing about aesthetics for decades. His foundation will donate 80 works of art to the center.

The design of the Centro de Artes Nadir Afonso is integrally intertwined with the urban development of the town of Boticas as it will create a cultural extension of the emerging town center. Strategically located at the intersection of newly built national highways, the museum is poised to become a global destination that will expose the art of Nadir Afonso, to a much larger audience as well as serve as a cultural and economic engine for the local economy and surrounding region.
