Porsche has always been adamant about instilling precise design and engineering in their cars, not only in the sense of aesthetic beauty, but also as an homage to their legacy. To be given the responsibility of designing a museum to honor this legacy must have been a grounding experience.
Delugan Meissl Associated Architects are the ones accountable for designing the masterful Porsche Museum. An appropriate stark white interior emphasizes the spectacular 450 items collection within the museum. Upon entrance, visitors are welcomed by a capacious exhibition area to get them acquainted with what’s to come. Afterward, they can either browse chronologically, or proceed directly toward the main exhibition. And of course, for the kid inside you, the museum shop.
I love minimal typography printed directly onto wall surfaces. Although it serves the purpose of providing information up-close, the typography is elegant to view from a distance. The beauty of this museum is that, no matter where you point the camera, you’re bound to take an amazing photograph.
