Museum of Ethnography MEG

Graber Pulver Architekten as Architects

For urban considerations, the large scale exhibition spaces that had to be designed as black boxes, were placed underground / The above-ground part of the museum, with its distinctive geometry, has an iconographic presence in the urban con-text and is suggestive of foreign cultures, which is the purpose of the building / Like a carpet, the metal roof is atop of the above-ground volume with its exposed concrete sidewalls, and evokes pictures of the past as well as a vision of the fu-ture thanks to its rhomboid window openings / The generous staircase connects the media center under the roof, the foyer, the multipurpose hall, and the seminar rooms with the column-free underground exhibition space / The entrance hall and cafeteria on the ground floor face a square that is slightly raised from the street level.
