Museum Würth

April 5, 2010

Project by Ioannis Piertzovanis.

The design proposal is a small museum at the periphery of Basel for an existing trust. The location, which is neither picturesque nor representative, is in a green area surrounded by industry buildings and infrastructure. Without a defined collection, the museum is essentially a significant space and in order to define this space, we need to: one, identify the void; two, manipulate the light which makes the space apparent; and three, define with precision the limits of the project which should be closer to a pavilion than an institutional building.
