Landmark Tourist Spot
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 path to this museum is as often at Tadao Ando meditative. You walk out with a conscious detour so you think about where you are going. Upon entering, the head than on looking at art. In this case, a splendid collection of Japanese prints and room screens. Especially the unrolled panorama drawings are fabulous beautiful. In the changing collection is now (may ' 17) delicious colorful work.
