AM KUPFERGRABEN 10 PDF

The gallery Am Kupfergraben 10 is located on the Kupfergraben canal, overlooking the Lustgarten and the Museum Island. The intention was to build a modern building which incorporated but did not replicate the past. As part of the cityscape, the composition of the four-storey gallery building reacts to its immediate historic context, while the scale of its window openings reflects the urban dimensions of a corner building. As an urban infill, the new building connects with both of its neighbouring buildings with regard to their respective building heights and occupies the footprint of the preceding building destroyed in the war , while at the same time developing its own sculptural quality. The facades are of brick masonry on reconstituted stone courses with no visible expansion joints, using salvaged bricks pointed with slurry. Large window openings reflect the urban scale of the site and define the composition of the facade, given structure by their untreated wooden sashes.

The gallery, which was founded in , commissioned Chipperfield Architects with the interior design of the exhibition space. The interior is defined by daylight and pure lines, with solid materials characterizing the exterior. Spaces are organized in 5. The idea is to create a neutral and well proportioned space for working and showing art, our absolute protagonist. Furniture clearly follows the same idea: worktables are striking in their dimension, while the light grey linoleum of the tabletops plays off the light magnesium grey of the floors.

All details are thought in order to chip in this sense of simple linearity. As many works of art and installations need specific lights and atmosphere, spaces are smartly adaptable. The rooms are side-lit from different directions and daylight is controlled by adjustable panels, while artificial lights run unnoticed on the ceiling.

The Am Kupfergraben 10 gallery is located on the Kupfergraben canal, overlooking the Lustgarten and the Museum Island. Placed in a strategic corner position, that occupies the footprint of a pre-existing building destroyed during the war, the contemporary building reacts to its immediate historic context, referencing the past without replicating it.

In this particular site, the continuation of the urban block facades was considered paramount within the scheme. Large windows and brick courses with no visible expansion joints make the building develop its own sculptural image.

Am Kupfergraben 10

May be because we wanted to distinguish divisare from the web that is condemned to a sort of vertical communication, always with the newest architecture at the top of the page, as the "cover story," "the focus. Content that was destined, just like the oh-so-new architecture that had just preceded it a few hours earlier, to rapidly slide down, day after day, lower and lower, in a vertical plunge towards the scrapheap of page 2. Our model was the bookcase, on whose shelves we have gathered and continue to collect hundreds and hundreds of publications by theme. Every Collection in our Atlas tells a particular story, conveys a specific viewpoint from which to observe the last 20 years of contemporary architecture. A long, patient job of cataloguing, done by hand: image after image, project after project, post after post.
