Museums in the 21st Century: Concepts Projects Buildings
DÜSSELDORF  •  K21 Kunstsammlung  •  Ongoing
An exhibition of museum architecture from the 1st decade of the 21st century. 26 projects from four continents offer a broad cross-section of the most interesting.and forward-looking contemporary museum buildings, all currently in planning, under construction, or already completed. On view will be projects that arrive at strikingly contrasting solutions through the deployment of decidedly individualized formal means: Frank O. Gehry’s expressive idiom, for example, is juxtaposed against the clarity and homogeneity of Tadao Ando’s architecture.
Among the selected architects are Mario Botta, Stephan Braunfels, David Chipperfield, Coop Himmelb(l)au, Frank O. Gehry, Annette Gigon/Mike Guyer, Kisho Kurokawa, Daniel Libeskind and Jean Nouvel. All projects are documented through models, computer simulations, plans and sketches, as well as DVD installations.
