Glassy Cube at Night - Stuttgart, Germany

Newer Older

You see here a small section of the glass facade of the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. The glass front includes on each side of the building 56 fields, 7 in width and 8 in height.

Anyone who wants to can see the building here Wikipedia.

The Kunstmuseum Stuttgart is the art museum in Stuttgart, Germany. It opened in March 2005.

The cubic museum building with 5000 m² of display space was designed by Berlin architects Hascher and Jehle. During the day it looks like a glass cube, and at nights the interior lighted limestone walls become visible.

The museum's collection comes from the previous "Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart". The city's collection goes back to a gift from the Marchese Silvio della Valle di Casanova in 1924. It contains one of the most important collections of the work of Otto Dix and also works from Willi Baumeister, Adolf Hölzel, Dieter Roth and others (wikipedia).

Zu sehen ist hier ein kleiner Ausschnitt der Glasfassade von dem Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. Die Glasfront umfasst an jeder Gebäudeseite 56 Felder, 7 in der Breite und 8 in der Höhe.
Wer möchte, kann das Gesamtgebäude bei Wikipedia sehen .

Das Kunstmuseum wurde im März 2005 als „Nachfolgemuseum“ der Galerie der Stadt Stuttgart eröffnet. Im ersten Jahr nach der Eröffnung des Hauses wurden 330.000 Besucher gezählt. Damit hat das Kunstmuseum sogar die Staatsgalerie in Stuttgart überflügelt (Quelle: Stuttgarter Zeitung). Seine exponierte Lage in der Fußgängerzone Königstraße trägt ebenso dazu bei wie die außergewöhnliche Architektur eines die Ausstellungsräume umhüllenden strengen Glaskubus.

Das Museumsgebäude mit 5000 m² Ausstellungsfläche wurde von den Berliner Architekten Hascher und Jehle entworfen. Es wirkt von außen tagsüber als gläserner Würfel, der die Umgebung als Spiegel aufnimmt. Nachts werden die beleuchteten Travertinwände im Innern sichtbar (Wikipedia)
