Frankfurt Museum of Modern Art

  •  
    This museum concept responds to a triangular site, defined by several partially destroyed buildings from World War II.  The solution includes an adaptive re-use of existing fragments and their integration with new rectangular enclosures in glass and masonry – all elements defined by the constraints of the triangle.  This collision of formal strategies requires cutting away a section of the East façade, allowing the floor planes to break off in space and extending ground level paving into the street.  These fragmented tiers provide inside/outside galleries and dramatically exposed display platforms for viewing outdoor sculpture.
