Bauhaus Museum Dessau, 2019

A monumental monolithic black box under a glass shell will house the permanent collection. Seemingly hovering above the ground, the structure creates a new and unexpected public plaza on the ground floor, embodying a transparent gate to the public park next to it.

Bauhaus Museum Dessau, 2019

Referring to some specific features of the Bauhaus building in Dessau – the glazed Curtain Wall, the two-story Bridge and the overall impression of transparency, lightness and plane
surfaces – the new museum will embody a manifesto of contemporary culture that could most accurately be described as ‘low resolution at its best’.

Publication: Bauhaus Museum Dessau Cahier Series
