Hans Arp Museum Germany
Design: Richard Meier & Partners Architects
Location: Rolandseck, Germany
Jean Arp was born in Strasbourg as Hans Arp in 1886. He became a member of the Dada movement, the Dadaists.
The Museum also explains the work of Sophie Taeuber-Arp
The design of the Arp Museum represents the seamless integration of the building’s spectacular site with the museum’s mission to showcase the work of the Dadaist master Hans Arp and his circle. One of the unique features of the region in which the museum is located is the series of medieval castles that line a 35-mile stretch of the river Rhine. The Arp Museum, sited on a wooded escarpment overlooking the Rhine, responds and echoes the forms of these captivating relics.
The structure’s entry sequence does not begin in the museum proper, but rather at the base of the bank-side mountain, in the old village railway station, used since the 1960s as an exhibition space. The lowest level of the station functions as the main entrance to the new museum building, which is reached only gradually by a series of carefully modulated tunnels and shafts that burrow into and up through the mountain to the new building.
