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.

  • Small friendly art museum in a nice building. Surprisingly little space for art, but the place itself is worth seeing if you like art museums.

  • Surprising Museum with ancient and modern works of art in a modernist building that is a work of art in itself. To an Art Museum Park at the old military site in the middle of niederrheinscher landscape.

  • Architect Tadao Ando has created a really impressive building of the Langen Foundation. The collection inside was interesting and well presented. A must for lovers of art and architecture.

  • 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!
  • Cool
