Langen Foundation, Neuss
(4.3/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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 Museumsinsel 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.

  • The Museum building is certainly very special. Yes, it has the charm of a factory, but also the elegance of a Kunstkatedrale. That won't leave anyone cold. The buildings on the missile base are special. Too bad that you can not touch the works of art, cannot understand. Sensitive pieces understandable, but in stainless steel and meterhoher ceramics? Also it is a pity that you can not shoot on the missile base, the access is free. Only the Museum costs a visit worth admission (adults €8) in each case.

  • A museum was built on the site of the former missile base. But also on the grounds of the former missile base there is plenty to see. Besides a fixed exhibition, there are also temporary exhibitions of different artists in the Museum. Who wants to go there regularly, should pick up the best a kind card. It will cost €80 for a year. With it, you can visit not only the missile base, but also the Museum Island Hombroich, Schloss Dyck and the museums in Düsseldorf "free of charge" (up on the one-time annual fee).

  • Located within the site "Museum Insel Hombroich - part Raketenstation, check out this maginifique building of the architect Tadao Ando." Concrete saw, with layout based on the Japanese tatami 90/180 structure you will discover a permanent exhibition of art asiatiqie in the nave under the main canopy. We were able to discover the new exhibition of the artist Richard Deacon. Building to discover as well as the site.

  • In the minimalist architecture of Tadao Ando's architecture, can be found between changing exhibitions of contemporary art, great exhibits of Asian art.

  • We wanted just to the coffee, yet a family ticket was sold without any indication that the coffee is located outside the exhibition, us and although we left the show after 3 minutes, our ticket was non-refundable. In hindsight, even the explicit desire created us after visiting the exhibition in the mouth. Really rude.
