ZF Sachs Museum
Statement of the jury
This striking design is the successful conversion of an industrial building to the ZF AG museum in Schweinfurt. The building is set back, for which reason a powerful all-over concept was chosen for the façades. A wall of metal mesh forms a new “forward” element that retraces the slate façade behind it. The shell of the exhibition hall, which is highly interesting in both form and function, is included as part of the set dressing as an authentic piece of industrial history.
