    brandhorst museum munich, germany (2008)
    Bad Bruise, Deep Peach and Ruben’s Flesh
    The polychromatic facade appears similar to a large, abstract painting. It is constructed of several layers. A layer of horizontally folded bi-coloured sheet-metal skin with fine perforations absorbs the traffic noise. 36,000 ceramic rods, glazed in 23 different colours, are hung in front of this element. They are arranged in three colour families (“Bad Bruise”, “Deep Peach” and “Ruben’s Flesh”) in such a way that the building appears to consist of three interlocking volumes.
    The surface of the building alters as the observer moves. At the scale of the façade as a whole, the layering of horizontal and vertical lines along with the contrast and merging of colours create a general impression of oscillation in the closed exterior walls of the building – almost of dematerialisation.

      Superb composition! I took several shots of the Brandhorst on a grey day, but it needs some sunshine to bring out the colours.

      Hmmm... =) da war ich auch schon... allerdings ist mir soooo eine klasse Aufnahme nicht gelungen!! (Vielleicht lag das auch an dem ständigen Regen...)
      Auf jeden Fall ein tolles Farbspektakel, aus einem genialen Blickwinkel!!

      This photography is unique!!
      A great unusual perspective!! Thanks for sharing!!!
