In much of the city of Cologne the flood control level is presently being raised to between 11.30 m and 11.90 m. Parts of the left bank of the Rhine in Cologne’s catchment area are to be protected by up to 4-metre high mobile flood walls and gates, which will be stored at eight locations in close proximity to the Rhine.

Kolumba Museum / Peter Zumthor

© Jose Fernando Vazquez

Special thanks to our reader Jose Fernando Vazquez from Urbana Arquitectura (view his work previously featured on AD) who has shared these images of Zumthor’s amazing Kolumba Museum with us.   Situated in , Germany, a city that was almost completely destroyed in World War II, the museum  houses the Roman Catholic Archdiocese’s collection of art which spans more than a thousand years.   Zumthor’s design delicately rises from the ruins of a late-Gothic church, respecting the site’s history and preserving its essence.  ”They [the Archdiocese] believe in the inner values of art, its ability to make us think and feel, its spiritual values. This project emerged from the inside out, and from the place,” explained Zumthor at the museum’s opening.

More about the project and more of Vazquez’s images after the break.
