Textile art has played an important role in the history and culture of Oaxaca. The textile museum of Juan José Santibáñez translates this impressively into architecture. This project was created in the middle of the historical center, carefully integrated into an existing building. In the inner courtyard of the museum there is a double-shell wall of red, individually crafted bricks. The bricks were handmade in the region. The strong colour of the bricks radiates a powerful atmosphere and gives the museum a distinctive character. The encounter of contemporary and historical architecture as well as the inclusion of the haptic quality and motifs of textile art is, in my opinion, fitting perfectly for this place.
