Our proposal for the Bauhaus Museum Dessau is both an exhibition space for the museum’s art collection, and an education facility.

Conceived as a single story, 3.100 m2 pavilion penetrated by courtyards with sight lines through layers of transparent walls. The visitor experience involves landscape captured within the perimeter of the building, the openness of patios and visitor zone serve to connect the institution with the park and city, providing a possibility for non ticketed visitors to view featured artworks.
