This beautiful museum is covered in a hand-drawn concrete facade.
Museum for Architectural Drawing springs forth from the end of a row of 100-year-old apartment buildings at the entrance to the Industrial monument known as the Pfefferberg . The stack of immense concrete ‘builder’s blocks’ that make up the building are etched with historical architectural drawings. Not only is the small museum one of Berlin’s most pleasing juxtapositions of contemporary and historical architecture, it’s also remarkably energy efficient . Inhabitat visited the museum to get a feel for the spaces and find out more about how the builders added drawings to the concrete facade. Read on to take a tour of this imaginative space.
