The Museum of World Cultures

Trint + Kreuder d.n.a. — The Museum of World Cultures

Multiple figure in the park

Trint + Kreuder d.n.a. — The Museum of World Cultures

The museum is situated in a park at the „Schaumainkai“ at the Main River close to the centre of Frankfurt. Due to the requirements of the competition-description, the whole exhibition is arranged underground, while no multi-storey structures appear on park level. Instead, a composition of welcoming gestures opens up to the visitor when passing the small structures which open up the subterranean levels to natural light. The main entrance patio leads to the exhibition which expands underground at one level, even including magazines, craft services and lecture rooms in terms of optimized functions. In between the concentrated atmosphere of the exhibition spaces the courtyards appear as a kind of “pearl-chain of light” to the visitor.
