Just a few metres away from probably the most celebrated building by architect Alberto Campo Baeza, the General Savings Bank of Granada, stands Andalucia’s Museum of Memory, by the same author.
The museum borrows certain references from the bank, such as the building’s height, which is the same as that of the bank; the material is concrete in both cases; the podium height is coincident, as is the mention of a patio in the composition of the building, just as a few examples.
Far from being a repetition, these coincidences are just intended to give continuity to the work started in 1992 when Campo Baeza won the competition for the General Savings Bank.
