Kunsthalle Bremen / by Michelle Linden

This competition entry for an addition to the Kunsthalle Bremen in Bremen, Germany was designed by Italian firm IaN+. The intent is to celebrate the existing structure by creating an addition that contrasts the current museum and yet still allows the public to enjoy the older structure. The addition envelopes one of the facades, allowing visitor to experience the original museum while occupying the new addition. The glass skin acts as a beacon during the day, and brightly illuminates the existing museum at darkness.
