Congress Centrum and former Gauforum, Weimarhallenpark (city park) and urban residential area: At the

fulcrum

of three morphologically very different parts of the city, the Neue Bauhaus Museum integrates itself in a bold and confident manner.

The city's new flagship building is placed in a

staggered

A reduction of the floor area creates public space on a scale appropriate to the context, and thereby also improves the diverse

The new public space strengthens the

visual connection

with the surrounding urban area, the building develops skywards.

The ceiling above the ground floor pays reference to an under canopy. Recessed glass facades allow a view of the four cores supporting the massive upper part of the building, as well as

views from every direction.
