A new year means a new beginning, new adventures, new goals and one of our goals this year is to become more organized with our uploading schedule. So we decided to upload a new post once a week specially on Thursdays!! So be tuned to see more about our contents!
On today’s post we will talk about an amazing museum; the Zentrum Paul Klee Museum. This is a beautiful project located in Bern Switzerland, created by Renzo Piano; an italian architect. The building was created in homage to the great painter Paul Klee; one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.
The museum is located near Schöngrüng, northeast of Bern. In the middle of a meadow of green tranquility this museum looks like if it was implanted in the ground. There is a forest in the background and the Alps on the merits, in which the building tries to blend into.
The design of the museum is based on curves emerging from the ground forming an arch and arriving to the floor again, and the intention is to adapt the project to the surrounding environment.
The structure is made of steel girders, and the facades are made of glass, combining these materials in the exterior with grass and a diversity of vegetation; the principal materials used in the interior are combined with oak on the floor.
We think that good architecture is one that really adapts to the enviroment and Zentrum Paul Klee Museum achieves it!
