The San Jose Museum was not receiving the attention and footfall it deserved as one of the city’s major cultural destinations. With the museum’s director, Florencia Urbina, DunnettCraven developed a masterplan which introduced new facilities and revised links with the city and surrounding parkland. The project also included new offices for the Ministry of Culture and an installation that spanned one of the major motorway approaches into the city. These initiatives involved collaboration with the Veritas University and a team of international and local artists.
