Historical Museum, Frankfurt

LRO Lederer Ragnarsdóttir Oei 

A building with explicit references to medieval architecture replaces an obsolete brutalist annex that never managed to gain acceptance in the historical core of the city of Frankfurt.

An entrance plaza envisioned as an open-air exhibition space divides the museum into two parallel parts: one integrated into the historical ensemble of the Saalhof; the other on its own but evoking its forms.

The carefully devised composition of facade and roof apertures make for an abundance of daylight indoors, as well as the building’s openness to the exterior, connecting the items on display to the surroundings.
