Foster and Partners have unveiled their vision for the expansion, restoration and renovation of the Lenbachhaus Museum in Munich. Untouched since 1955, the gallery spaces will be sensitively re-organised and restored, and the antiquated services and technical installations will be replaced with state-of-the-art systems. The sympathetic restoration of the building will maintain the unique character of the garden-fronting facades, while the building along Richard-Wagner Street will be transformed into an exhibition building fit for the 21st century, creating a lively dialogue between the old and new parts of the museum. A new entrance will further improve connections within the gallery, and will also enhance a sense of openness for the wider community, allowing direct access to the café and conference room independently of the galleries. The museum will therefore be both a cultural centre, as well as an important new amenity for the city.
