Langen Foundation, Neuss
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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.See Langen Foundation and all Neuss has to offer by arranging your trip with our Neuss travel itinerary planner.

Florian SchlösserWe 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.show original
