The Federal Art and Exhibition Hall - the Bundeskunsthalle, on Bonn’s Museum Mile is one of Germany’s most frequented museums. As of today the streams of visitors will pass through the foyer that HPP Architects have just redesigned.
HPP’s restructuring of the functional areas shows great respect for the original design by Viennese architect Gustav Peichl completed in 1992. It is based on the movement of visitors through space and pays tribute to the original intent that takes secondary importance to the exhibitions. The illuminated perspex cubes housing the ticket and audio-guide desks work as natural orientation points within the foyer.
