Default when art meets architecture

Hi

Herzog & de Meuron are a worldfamous duo of architects.
They did the renovation of the Unterlindenmuseum in Colmar, France.
There I found this fascinating picture looking up a spiral staircase and pushed it with a little help of Alienskin:

Wolfgang,

This is so handsome and sensuous!

First I thought it was a Mobius sculpture but then it might be an issue going upstairs as one would end up upside down!

What a wondrous photo!

It reminds us that the most important component of a camera setup is the photographer's vision!

Thanks.

Best regards,

Doug

Yes, that would be a real hazard in such a case!

Best regards,

Hi

thank you for your kind remarks ... yep, Moebius would be problematic ... :-))
What's so fascinating on their work (especially in Colmar) is the organic expression in many aspects of the building, the playing with the light(s) ...
For example the staircases do invite you to touch them, to enjoy the forms and surfaces with your senses ... it is really overwhelming in some way.

I posted it already but want to show it again: the great spiral in a calyotype version

This is so beautiful, smooth, natural, soothing and impressive.

Where is this located so I can see other pictures of it and read about its construction.

Still, I have doubts that this, (Fibonacci), spiral can be used a lot in architecture as the rate of expansion of the spiral quickly creates giant voids of decreasing interest. Here, in this picture, the width of the stairs allows insertion of mass and so it works extraordinarily well!

I wish I had known when I was nearby, in the village of Luttenbach!

But that was some 60 years ago and it I now learn that the cast concrete spiral staircase is part of the brilliant renovations, just completed in 2015 turning an historical landmark and adjacent convent into a spectacularly modern exhibition space still in synergy with its medieval past and style.

Hi

Meggie: thanks for your comment :-)) much appreciated ...!
Asher: the museum was reopened in December 2015, the two architects did a very subtle and sensous work, respecting the old historical Museum on the necessary way to extent it into our time.
Their actual project is the Elbphilharmonie at Hamburg, Germany ...
