Marta Herford

Marta Herford
With its flowing, tilting walls, the Marta in East Westphalia’s Herford is one of the most unusual museum buildings in the world. For the façade the American star architect Frank Gehry chose dark red bricks which stand in stark contrast to the shiny stainless steel roof and the plastered white core of the building.
