#3 of 11 in Things to do in Neuss
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.

    This building, remarkable architecture, part of the exceptional site of the Foundation "Insel Hombroïch" (to visit the same day that the Park/Museum; it is across the road). 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.

    The building of the architect Tadao Ando is a model of elegance and integration in the surrounding nature. 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.

    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
