ZENTRUM PAUL KLEE

Cities: BERNE
Countries: SWITZERLAND
Categories: CULTURAL ARCHITECTURE
Date: 2005
The Paul Klee Centre is a multifunctional space: in addition to the permanent collection, it also houses temporary exhibitions, a concert hall, and a centre with ateliers for children. The shapes of the cultural complex recall the curves of the surrounding landscape, thus becoming an integral part of it. The Centre is composed of three hills made of glass and steel. Each “hill” corresponds to one different function of the centre, and runs through the life of the artist, who was a painter, a musician and a poet. The light, potentially harmful to the extremely fragile art pieces, is diffused by a system of translucent screens that delicately reflect the light.
