Marino designs for Zwinger museum in Dresden 

Architect Peter Marino has created the new architecture and design for the Oriental Gallery of the Zwinger Royal Porcelain Collection at Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden, which is to open on October 15, 2006. Marino was commissioned for the installation to create a strong visual impression for the entire Oriental Gallery. Marino is introducing his unique vision of modern luxury and baroque exuberance to the Zwinger. Inspired by the 18th century French architect Zacharias Longuelune who drafted the original plans for the gallery in 1735, Marino combines authentic historical forms with a modern interpretation of historical design concepts. Gilded consoles, mantelpieces and decorative tables in front of sumptuous silk-covered walls will bring to life the splendor of the baroque era: the style of presentation and the use of refined materials will emphasize more clearly than ever before the nature of the exhibition as a Royal Collection.
