The Porsche Museum

View all 10 Photos

In the car-centric town of Stuttgart, Germany stands the Porsche Museum. An architectural wonder of reflective geometries that embodies the dynamic, forward-thinking design philosophy of Porsche. The building project was launched in 2004, when Delugan Meissl Associated Architects were chosen from over 170 international applicants for designing the museum. The Viennese firm proposed a building that appears to be a monolith floating on three V-shaped columns. With respect to Porsche’s dynamic car design, the building is looks different from every angle, given the variation of structural geometries and material surfacing visible from each perspective. When approaching the building, each visitor is greeted by the glazed mirror-like façade that leads down a small incline to the entrance of the museum.  Once inside, an escalator brings you beyond the essentially nonexistent “middle” of the building, straight to the remarkable showroom at the top.  Stepping off the escalator it is impossible not to be overwhelmed by the  historical, contemporary, and conceptual collection of cars that signify Porsche’s innovation in automotive design for over a half-century.
