Architect: Rafael Moneo

Date: 1980-1985

Location: Merida, Spain

The National Museum of Roman Art was built to display the Roman artifacts from around Spain.  It was designed to use the Roman style as a source of style.  The entire building appears to be constructed from Brick but instead the brick is a fromwork for the reinforced concrete.  From the outside the building tries to not appear massive through the use of buttresses that line the main street facade.
