We see The New Bauhaus Museum Weimar as a Bridge, connecting and bringing together not only the museum’s historic collections, but also the Weimar public, by creating a welcoming museum and community center with an adjoining “Bauhaus Platz” as a new, highly active civic center in Weimar. The museum’s unique site at the edge of the Weimar Park and Historic Asbach Green Corridor to the west and its urban borders with the Weimar Centrum and Thurigian Adminstration Building and greater Weimar to the east, offer an incredible opportunity to “bridge” together these currently disconnected important parts of Weimar.
The Concept of our proposal begins with simple, rational, formal functionalism in the spirit of the Bauhaus ethos, to create an efficient, open and flexible exhibition system, which allows the historical Bauhaus Collection to interweave, while being visually connected to all Chapters for the Collection. The cyclical nature of the exhibition layout on the upper level, allows visitors to freely explore the Museum’s Collections from either current day chapters, moving into the past, or experience the collection from the past moving forward. The free layout provides opportunities to explore and learn at one’s own pace.
