The project by Holzer Kobler Architekturen for the competition of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Wroclaw is a visionary design consisting of two elements: the exhibition halls, which are conceived as neutral black boxes in order to focus on the art that will be shown within and to allow for a maximum of flexibility in its use, and light spacious rooms for cultural events, learning and living (library, office and conference rooms, museum’s club, restaurant, shop, …).

This intertwining of the “black box” exhibition spaces with very limited daylight and the open space for cultural experience and learning is at the core of the architectural concept. The linearity of the exhibition leads in its circuit in a clear sequence through the building, regularly linking into the transparent light and more fluid structure containing the neural, central organisation of public function and the cultural elements such as the café, restaurant, conference rooms, library and the clubs.

The Outdoor Gallery/Sculpture Garden on the roof will be part of the visitors’ circuit, while the Museum’s Club will be situated on the rooftop and give its members an exclusive view across the roof garden towards the city centre on the side where the sun sets.

The project has been developed in cooperation with Jean-Lucien Gay, NAU architecture, and ARUP Berlin.
