The Appenzell region and the Rennwelt are the topics of the architecture of the
Auto Museum: The Rennwelt formally and programmatically, the landscape context.
The symbiotic interplay opened multiple perceptions and use a high flexibility. The car museum is like a station at the racetrack Bypass road. As a small part of a large landscape, it takes the scale of the surrounding settlements on. The soil itself is its surface. It jut three wings with large windows in the meadow, forming the interface between Rennwelt and landscape. Organic shapes, light, motion control surfaces and space dynamics.
The exhibition is the situation created. She has several stations that are emerging outdoor and inside the exhibition areas are connected to the loop. Designed as a generous and flexible exhibition space for cars, is the main hall with its lateral extensions varied uses. The west wing has to bypass showcase effect.
Visitors park their cars on the Aussichtsdeck, coaches turn on the forecourt and wait in the Directions field. From the railing of the parking decks on the wings we have the vision over the Appenzell region.
