Museum Erding, Germany

Chris Hodson

A project characterised by bold forms and facades enlivened with golden copper alloy shingles, this new addition to a Museum in the Bavarian town of Erding makes the most of its constrained site. 

The new addition adjoins the eastern side of a protected historic building - home to the Erdinger Museum’s collection since 1986 and currently under renovation - with a glazed link maintaining a respectful distance between them.

The taller, upper level main exhibition space is a simple, flat-roofed cubic form. It is encased by unbroken surfaces, relieved by the strong geometric texture of large interlocking shingles manufactured from a golden copper alloy.

This bold, golden form floats above the generously glazed lower level which houses a new entrance, café, training rooms, offices and special exhibition spaces. The new addition is thoroughly modern but does not attempt to compete with its historic host.
