This project pursued two main objectives: creating generous exhibition spaces directly connected to the existing museum building and integrating the museum and the neighbouring KWI institute into a creative campus. Our strategy organized the organic integration of exterior and interior spaces through a concept of ramification.

Emscher Kunst in Essen, Germany by OOZE

Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden

The project Between the Waters: The Emscher Community Garden is located at one of the narrowest points on Emscher Island, between the Emscher River and the Rhine-Herne Canal. The walk through the project starts next to the Rhine-Herne Canal, with visitors entering the Community Garden; it then leads uphill beside the fully exposed water supply and treatment installation. The walk ends on an elevated platform above the Emscher River dyke. Here visitors can view the challenging topography of the landscape and see for themselves how the highly polluted (and for this reason fenced-off) Emscher River is elevated above the nearby towns, which have sunk as a result of mining activity in the previous century. Looking down the slope towards the Rhine-Herne Canal, they have a clear view of the complex water processing installation, which works with the water on the site between the two waterways.

Depot Zollverein in Essen, Germany by Ahlbrecht Felix Scheidt Kasprusch (designed using ArchiCAD)

Neubau Depot und Verwaltung RUHR MUSEUM in Essen

Depot and Administration RUHR MUSEUM on the world heritage Zollverein, Essen

An extreme restraint for all structural addition within the context of the world heritage – the colliery of Zollverein with all architectural qualities and inestimable historic values – is indicated. The course of the design for the new depot of the Ruhr Museum was based on serenity and mastery. Clear geometry and decreased material selection were ways and methods for the design. On the one hand, the building is positioned into the correct context, on the other hand it abstracts and sublimates this context.
