Military Museum Dresden / Libeskind

Today i want to lead your eyes to a fascinating combination of classic and modern architecture. Daniel Libeskind has integrated a spike to the old building, which had been standing without purpose and empty for some 20 years. Now it reopened as the german military museum and is definitely worth a visit if you are around. The exposed concrete has been done very nicely and for once i have the impression that the combiantion of classizism and modernism has been accomplished in a not so eye-soring way. The formwork for sure is on the way to being complicated, but i guess it was more of a job for the statics engineers. Formwork was provided by Peri GmbH.

  1. Nice way to decorate your walls. I have never done that. My effort to beautify the walls in my house was to order big-sized canvas prints from wahooart.com, from images of western art. I use the same angel motifs in all of the rooms painted by different painters, such as this one by very interesting English artist Stanley Spencer, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT7K6
