Basque Sculpture Museum

Museums are in the city. Churches, estate homes, and castles are in the countryside. At least this is what I have come to anticipate. So, how fabulous to find a museum secluded in the countryside. The Chillida Museum was at one time the home of Eduardo Chillida. This artist dreamed of turning his land into a sculpture garden. In addition to this accomplishment, the Chillida home was turned into a museum. What a great example of architecturally significant adaptive use. The interior of the home was gutted, but this emphasized the structure of the residence, the thickness of the walls, and the materials. The interior accommodates the program of the museum and still allows a residential feel to linger. The interior materials and expressions reflect the region while making a strong architectural statement. *Basque Sculpture Museum
