3XN wins architecture competition for the Randers Museum of Art

3XN just shared with us their winning entry for the Randers Museum of Art, a “sculpture sitting in a sculpture garden” according to the architects, a sinuous building both open to both the town and the landscape. 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.

From the architects:

Randers Museum of Art will be a prominent new landmark at the entrance to the town of Randers and alongside the Guden River.  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. The competition included 5 teams: 3XN,  Zaha Hadid, Behnish Arkitekten, CoopHimme(l)blau and entasis a/s.
