HATJE CANTZ

Richard Meier: Museum Frieder Burda

Text by Gerhard Everke, Richard Meier, Wolfgang Pehnt.

Following his Getty Center in Los Angeles and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Barcelona, celebrated American architect Richard Meier (born 1934) has created another stunning example of museum architecture. Full of light, the Sammlung Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden sits alongside the Staatliche Kunsthalle, and the two are linked via glass bridge. In contrast to the neo-classical Kunsthalle, Sammlung Frieder Burda has the air of a California mansion, distinguished by its elegance, transparency and openness. Set on the city's historic Lichtentaler Allee park and arboretum, the building is referred to by many--including its architect--as the “jewel in the park.” This newly revised assessment of the project charts the museum from its early phases to completion through numerous sketches, plans and photographs. The book also features essays by art historians and architecture critics that expand upon the structure, its function and its location.

FROM THE BOOK
"The richness and the luminosity of the Museum Frieder Burda not only complement the works of the brilliant artists represent , but the interconnections and the relationships of conception and their means of expression will be viewed in a new light. The changing weather of the day, the changing seasons of the year make the daylight in the museum illuminate the art in a matter that can never be achieved by artificial light. Light is the key material that not only illuminates the town of Baden-Baden and the Lichtentaler Allee with a clear translucent quality, but pervades the interior spaces of the Museum as well. This enables the visitor to view the works of art during the day in natural light, like the conditions under which most of the artists created them. The Museum Frieder Burda will be as conceptually and physically radiant as, hopefully, the experience of being ther."

Richard Meier, excerpted from On the Museum Frieder Burda in Richard Meier: Museum Frieder Burda.
