I was away in Munich for the last week drinking way too much beer at the Oktoberfest. I managed to see a few things outside the beer tents and the Brandhorst Museum by Sauerbruch Hutton was one of the things that amazed me. Unfortunately it was Monday when I visited so it was closed but the facade is probably the best part of it. It’s made of 36,000 ceramic rods in 23 colours arranged in families of eight colours. The second layer is made up of horizontally folded metal panels in two colours and installed at an angle. “This layering and its polychromy lends the skin a varied appearance: What is vivid and three-dimensional from close up will appear homogeneous and flat from afar.” Apologies for the bad photos, I still haven’t got around to getting a decent camera.
