The project was won in a competition for the extension of Museum of Artistic
Process and Public Art, Lund, whose unique collection is focused on artistic
process. The current building is a cluster of several additions resulting into a closed block facing the park. The new extension contains a double height foyer and a restaurant connected to a terrace facing south, in an open composition
aiming to reconnect the museum, the park, and the city.
The two bent weathering steel volumes introduces a new material in relation to the raw concrete museum building and the brick architecture of the University campus. Like the movement of an idea, the museum materiality will constantly
evolve with time. The floating window layout offers multiple views across the
rooms and towards the park, as artworks on a wall.
