From the project’s earliest stages, the goal has been to create a strong physical connection and sense of continuity from the existing museum to the addition. Building on this initial concept, two other very important relationships that have been a focus of the project are the connection from outside to inside and from the addition’s entrance level to its main gallery level.

The initialignitionfor the design of the Museum of the Bavarian history is a seamless integration into the UNESCO World Heritage site, the old town of Regensburg. Derived from the existing roofscape the building references to history and the existence. In order to create a haptic integration, the facade is classic and modern at the same time, made out of bright, whitewashed bricks. The existing lane structure is assimilated and continued to the river Danube.

The codfish aquarium connects two other buildings and sets and a complex built ensemble, united around the subjects of the sea and fishing. In this unusual structure, the Maritime Museum is the place of memory, the Aquarium the space for marine life and CIEMAR, installed in the old renovated school, the research center for the activities of man linked to the sea.
In articulating these three units the building is both an autonomous urban equipment that relates to the context and defines a public space, but it is also a building-path, which develops in a spiral around the tank as it connects the Museum to the old school.

The installation Pretty Vacant by design and research studio Rietveld Landscape encourages visitors to take a fresh look at the empty spaces of the Centraal Museum. The blue window literally and figuratively sheds a new light on the space and complements the architecture of this medieval chapel.

The Museum of Underwater Archaeology is based on three main principles:
Transforming a SYMBOL of a post-industrial era into a SYMBOL of cultural infrastructure.
UTILITY – creating human scale and dynamic visual and communication connections from a distance and in close-up view.
ECOLOGICAL and HEDONISTIC SUSTAINABILITY – using the natural and climate resources and aesthetic emotional potential of the site.
