Art and concrete really do mix.

Archdaily.com featured in its website stunning artworks propped up by concrete pillars that lent even more character to the artworks that are on display.

“Removed from display in 1996, the concrete pillars, wood and glass easels were reviewed by METRO Arquitetos, who became part of MASP’s curatorial team — in charge of exhibition design — last December.  Having carried out various exhibitions this year at the museum – such as Brazilian Art Through the 1900s – METRO Arquitetos decided to end the year by bringing back the easels, in an exhibition similar to the original one conceived by Lina, which almost five decades later, continues to impress with its innovative way of exhibiting art in museums.”

“Every piece, from beginning to end, is hand made. Each piece of wood is carefully chosen for its part. Every inlay of wood or shell or stone is thoughtfully placed.”
