VISITOR CENTER / city archive Wuppertal DE


THESIS city archive Wuppertal. A new building for the existing archives as well as a new visitor center for the historical center.

The new city archive forms the gate and the entrance to the historical center. Therefore it is not just an archive building, it is the connection between public and history. Accordingly, the designconcept deals with aspects of public and transparency. This means that the visitor can experience the inner organization and the motion sequences.

The Building is divided into two parts, the basement and the roof. The basement contains the archives and the space between roof and basement forms the public area.
