Museion - the museum of modern and contemporary art in Bozen
In 2008 the Museion, museum of modern and contemporary art in Bozen opened its new building designed by the Berlin architects KSV Krüger Schuberth Vandreike and commissioned by the Autonomous Province of Bolzano.
Instead of a simple container of artworks, Museion will be an international laboratory for research with an interdisciplinary focus: this is the museum that is being born.
Museion sets at the center of its development a strong activation of the collection that will live in a relationship with temporary exhibitions. Museion’s project is reflected in its architecture. The cubic form of the building is visually striking, with the transparent front facades offering a dialogue with the city.
The physical and symbolical tie between the historical center and the new city is completed by the two parallel and oscillating curves of the bridge, an integral part of the project.
