Langen Foundation near Neuss, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany is a museum designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. The foundation showcases a collection of Oriental Art and Modern Art. It is located on the grounds of the Museum Insel Hombroich.ArchitectureThe museum was created on grounds which used to be a NATO rocket base. The building has double-skin volume and two half-buried temporary exhibition wings with a total area of 900 m2; the structure mainly consists of reinforced concrete, glass and steel. The museum offers three exhibition spaces totalling an area of 1,300 square metres. Situated within the ground-level concrete slab is the so-called Japan Room – an unusually long and narrow gallery conceptualised by Ando as a space of “tranquillity” especially for the Japanese segment of the Langen Collection. The two subterranean exhibition rooms, with a ceiling height of a surprising eight metres, were in turn designed to accommodate the modern part of the collection. The museum opened to the public in 2004.Start your trip to Neuss by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

The site is located in the part of the "Raketenstation", a former NATO base. At discover by taking his time to visit exhibitions, workshops of artists and architects, or just very original contemporary constructions.

We can stay to contemplate the large windows overlooking the pond for long moments of quiet and happy. Eclectic collection of Japanese pictorial art is very interesting to discover. The exhibition of contemporary art of Carolin Eidner got less convinced, sorry.
Het begint nochtans goed - architectuur van Tadao Ando met vooral verzamelstukken van de familie - voorts groot prachtig domein met verschillende gebouwen (waaronder middelmatige Siza) welke niet toeg... more »It starts however well-architecture by Tadao Ando with mostly collect pieces of the family-in addition, large beautiful domain with several buildings (including medium Siza) which were not accessible-the heirs have sold several pieces, so this museum is dead-despite the beautiful surroundings via the gates to the parking you can free site on, also along the Ando-building can you quite long covers-the museum and accompanying access money I advise you to skip
Not at all as expected. Architecture is somewhat hidden behind trees and just mildly interesting in a few instances. Thought the buildings would be open to view, but that's not the case. Everything was closed, including the Klostergarten which was stated as being open in the website... Nothing to do other than admiring a few outside walls and lots of fairly badly maintained footpaths. All in all a bit pointless, could have been so much more given the potential.
Closed due to snowfall...no communication except on the entrance door...
From the one and only Tadao Ando.
Very good architecture!
