randers museum of art – model by 3XN

danish architectural firm 3XN have been awarded first prize to design the new randers museum of art in denmark.

the new randers museum of art will be a transition point between town and landscape, art and nature.  opening up at one end towards the town – and at the other towards the landscape; the museum will merge these two concepts through the experience of the works of art within it. 

the architectural expression is playful, blurring the lines between art and museum.  using soft transitions, the red-tile façade of the exterior becomes the roof, and similarly on the inside, the floor becomes a wall, and then the wall a ceiling. 

randers museum of art will be a prominent new landmark at the entrance to the town of randers and alongside the guden river, denmark.  at a size of 7.550 m2, the museum will house three exhibition galleries, an auditorium, café, boutique and a range of administrative facilities.  the main exhibition gallery will house the museum’s considerable collection of danish art – directly connected to the landscape depicted in so many of its works.  the temporary exhibition space balances the national emphasis with its international potential; and a connecting transition between the galleries will be the dalsgaard zone, named for danish surrealist painter sven dalsgaard – of whom the museum carries one of the world’s most significant collections.
