Steel Foundry Finds New Life as Steel Musuem
Posted by Geoff Weisenberger on January 14, 2008 at 12:46 PM.

A cultural facility dedicated to steel should, ideally, be housed in a steel building, right?

 

A new museum in Monterrey, Mexico goes one step further: The Museo Del Acero Horno 3 is built in a decommissionsed foundry. Oficina de Arquitectura, the local architect, and London-based Grimshaw Architects adapted various portions of the facility, including a 230-ft-high blast furnace, and added 34,000 sq. ft of additional space.
