Kunst(Zeug)Haus Rapperswil Jona / Stürm Wolf Architects

At the presentation of the Velux Stiftung Daylight-Award presentation at the S AM Swiss Architecture Museum in Basel, Switzerland, another honorary award was given to Isa Stürm Urs Wolf Architects who realized a new (day-)light concept for the museum Kunst(Zeug)Haus Rapperswil-Jona. It’s an invention whereby the main structure of the building stays untouched. The jury states that “The building task is perceived as perfectly solved for an artspace; all the daylight is coming from the built annex on the roof, resulting in perfect exhibition light. It is perceived as a playful, unpretentious, intelligent and ‘fresh’ project.” In this video, Isa Stürm talks about the challenges the architects were facing in the course of conceiving and realizing the project.
