Sculpture Hall Of The Thomas Schütte Foundation

RKW Architektur + as Architects

In the cultural area Hombroich, between the museum island Hombroich and rocket station, RKW Architecture + realized the extraordinary building in cooperation with the Thomas Schütte Foundation. Together with the artist Thomas Schütte, the architects created the final form in a comprehensive and constructive dialogue. The exhibition hall is characterized by a freely exciting, wide-necked spoke wheel roof, which seems to float over the facade of poplar wood slats thanks to a skylight ribbon. Inside, the polished and oiled concrete floor provides the stage for changing exhibitions. With the central double cone of ring furnace bricks opening upwards, a very special spatial experience is created.
