Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico (MAPR)
The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico involved the modification of a 1920’s neoclassical building by architect William H. Shimmelphening, part of municipal Hospital in San Juan. The modern wing designed by architects Otto Reyes and Luis Gutiérrez in 2000, blends harmoniously with the historic building, featuring a a massive atrium in the Great Hall and with the historical face now serving as the main face to the museum.
