Cologne City Museum / Extension Cologne City Museum

Cologne City Museum

The project creates in addition to the three architectural elements Zeughaus, Alte Wache and Stadtmauer not a new component; it gets on rather as a part of the city wall. The extension is linked with the other buildings in the underground and press himself into the earth behind the foundations of the Roman wall and generates an „false“ of the city wall. Like a plateau the building lies behind the wall and is hardly discernible in the city space. Its create a roof scenery enclosed by the surrounding avenues which forms at the same time the facade to the city.
