The Ruhr Museum at Zeche Zollverein has been a special challenge for exhibition design. The historical importance of the coal washing plant forced the team of Prof HG Merz to deal with its spatial conditions in an inventive way. A distinct appearance was given to the exhibition that stands in clear contrast to the building's architecture. Besides the modest exhibition architecture the concept focuses on the simplicity of spatial structures and a lucid guidance of the museum's visitors. Together with L2M3 and jangled nerves the designers created a museum that is as unique as the coal washing plant itself.
