Museum Reinhard Ernst

The Reinhard Ernst Museum houses the broad collection of mid-century abstract paintings held by the Reinhard and Sonja Ernst Foundation. Its simple, cubic building form is subdivided into three volumes surrounding a central exterior court. The smaller volumes correspond to the scale of the surrounding older cityscape, following nearby eave lines and street facades wherever possible. The Museum's first floor is designed as a highly public space with a wide range of open programs. The second and third floor exhibition zones are animated with exterior terraces and views to the surroundings across the central courtyard. The goal is to establish a world-class art museum that still feels accessible and open to the city, giving the art broader exposure and creating interest ranging from children through connoisseurs.
