This new museum’s doors were designed and made by the Catalan artist Josep Plandiura. The striking visual work done by Plandiura came under harsh criticism because of the contrast that existed between his abstract work and the gothic architecture of the Cathedral of Barcelona.
The door was made using weathering steel, best-known by the trademark Cor-Ten steel, a group of steel alloys which were developed to eliminate the need for painting, and form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the weather for several years.
The door, with organic and labyrinth form, measures 3.5 meters high by 2.6 wide.
