ALEXANDER CALDER MUSEUM
Authors: Barbara Koren, Simon Jemec
Mentor: doc. mag. Tomaž Krušec, doc. dr. Matej Blenkuš
Location: Ljubljana, Slovenia
Task: Our task was to design a museum for well-known artist Alexander Calder, exhibiting both enormous standing and hanging sculptures.
The terrain on the location is declining. Besides, we were supposed to design a museum next to very important and protected old building of this city, facing its main dominant facade.
Design: We designed a museum under ground, with park on its roof, easily accessed by upper level of the terrain.
However, all sculptures are lit by natural light from skylight or from open-air atriums, depending on the type of the sculpture (hanging or standing).
