Extreme Architecture #1

The Mercedes-Benz Museum is a milestone of modern architecture, located in Stuttgart, Germany. It was designed between 2001 and 2006 by UNStudio and is already considered a classic architectural creation of the 21st century. Apart from the automotive exhibition, the museum also includes restaurants, stores, offices, and an auditorium. The building’s height and double helix interior were designed to maximize the space, providing 16,500 sq m (178,000 sq ft) of exhibition space on a base of just 4,800 sq m (52,000 sq ft). Looking at it from the outside, the building seems to have only three levels, but when on the inside, one can see that it is actually multi-leveled. The museum contains more than 160 vehicles, some dating back to the very earliest days of the motor engine.

One of the prominent aspects of the Mercedes-Benz Museum is the path followed by the visitors. Their tour does not start, as one would expect, from a conventional entrance on the ground floor of the building. Instead, they take an elevator to the rooftop, where they can choose between two directions, one that displays the pieces in a chronological order and another that visits the collection’s special pieces directly. The two cross paths on each floor, enabling visitors to switch routes should they wish to do so. A separate section includes the cars of celebrities, such as Emperor Hirohito’s car and Lady D’s SL.
