In early September we reported that the Museum der Kulturen Basel reopened its doors after two years of reconstruction, refurbishment and expansion.  Now we are providing you with some more images of this exciting design.

Among the updates was a Herzog & de Meuron design described as a ‘stunning crown for the historical walls: the beautiful rooftop of irregular folds fits harmoniously into the rooftops surrounding the cathedral’.
