  • The building is an open air library, not an museum. And the facade is made out of an recycled 50’s shopping mall facade from an early egon eiermann building … never the less it is an nice low budget building.

  • The museum itself is OK, but what is bothersome is the lack of considered placement: now the hood looks much like a ratatouille. and not in an appetizing sense. The graffiti-ish illustrations are a nice touch.
