4th Prize | Deutsch-Deutsches Museum


In collaboration with Benkert Schäfer Architekten Partnerschaft mbB and Babler+Lodde architects

Mödlareuth is an authentic living symbol of the German division, as this partition is still present today in both appearance and structure. The wall that ensured a consistent division between east and west is still partly present and legible in the village image – They are history’s footprint. The open space concept aims to highlight this footprint, in both the village and the landscape context, to connect it with the new museum building. It shall be accessible and usable through the different levels catered for both visitors and villagers alike.
