THE MUSEUM OF THE 20TH CENTURY
23 000 sqm
The proposal for the ideas competition aims to create a museum system with a reorganized urban space, rather than to merely construct a new museum building. The site inserts itself among the New National Gallery, the St. Matthias Church and the Philharmonic Hall, all embedded in a heterogeneous urban space. The superstructure core of the project spans the spaces in which the elements of the museum system evolve, scaling urban spaces to the human dimension. The peripheral areas of the project are marked by freestanding columns that usher visitors to the museum areas.
