Inside the modern art museum "Pinakothek der Moderne" in Munich


The Pinakothek der Moderne is a modern art museum, situated in the city centre of Munich, Germany. Together with the Alte Pinakothek, the Neue Pinakothek and Museum Brandhorst it is part of Munich's "Kunstareal" (the "art district").

The building

Designed by the German Architect Stephan Braunfels, the Pinakothek der Moderne was inaugurated in September 2002 after seven years of construction. The rectilinear facade, dominated by white and grey concrete, is interrupted by large windows and highrising columns, the latter supporting the extensive canopied roof. Each of the four corners of the building, connected by a central rotunda, is dedicated to a special collection. The Museum is thus divided into Art (Kunst), Architecture (Architektur), Design (Design) and Works on Paper (Graphik).



Developed from a single RAW photo. I had to lighten the walls by about 2.5 stops and manually adjust the white balance, to get the bright look. Just a bit of straightening was needed and i corrected the distortion with PTLens (always recommended for architectural shots), eventhough i used the Sigma 12-24mm, which produces only a very small amount of distortion, even at 12mm
