"Architecture and the Art Museum" Panel Discussion

What is the place of the museum in the modern city? What role does architecture play? How can these buildings be effectively interpreted?

AD Classics: Bonnefantenmuseum / Aldo Rossi

Situated in a former industrial district in the southern Dutch city of Maastricht, it’s perhaps fitting that the Bonnefantenmuseum has often been called a “viewing factory.” The museum, with its ‘E’-shaped plan and distinctive domed tower, is one of the most prominent landmarks along the River Meuse that flows around the city center. Europe’s rich cultural history was a key impetus for architect Aldo Rossi’s design, which employed a number of historical architectural gestures to place the Bonnefantenmuseum within a collapsed European canon.
