The architecture of the complex cultural museum / Bavariathek the city of Regensburg is projected to be the city with the intention, a city that is a place of passage, the self-generating life is excellent (Walter Benjamin, The Arcades factory). In this sense, this design explores the ability of Achitecture and urban planning to spread a cultural event, so that the transformation of this restaurant leads to optimism and a contrasting pleasure drive between the river, the museum, the city and the public in general.
Taking advantage of the excellent location on the Danube and close to the cathedral, the new museum is an urban landmark that reveals his historical narrative in its interior.
The Bavarian museum enables compatibility of various Maβstäben. The building rises from the ground in an unpredictable suspension, and is founded as a platform of large freedom / flexibility of the public space, so that it allows a connection between the macro scale, and the local boundary lines.
The suspended mass of more shaped cover created a “new monumentality” of the river front and is directly related to the distance scale of the cathedral.
Just as the local monuments, the museum is parallel to the Danube and has its main entrance in the west.
Here invites of large cantilever beam that creates a Height äuβere covered and multifunctional space, a the entrance.
The atmosphere of the MDBG presents Irregular coverings and dramatic inclinations that are inspired in the German Alps and in the neo-Gothic Our formalization of Kini. (“Dear King” – reference to Ludwig II in Bavarian dialect).
