Subject of the competition is the design of a new museum building in the heart of the city of Regensburg and the incorporation of the new building to the historic urban background. Basic target was to form an ark to house the history of the city. This ark has its unique personality, while its value is defined not only by the importance of the collection that hosts, but also by the completeness of the architectural synthesis and function. It consists of simple clean volumes that imitate the traditional architecture of the area. At the same time it goes a step forward following the potentials given by the contemporary architecture. Actually, we designed a state of art that houses art.
