Grimms World


Type:        Museum (Thesis)

Location:  Kassel, Germany

School:     TU Darmstadt

Design:    Gregory de Riquelme 

                 with Prof Manfred Koob



The project consisted in the design of a museum for the Grimm brothers as well as a fairytale research institute in Kassel, Germany. The challenge was to build a museum on a terraced site with up to 30m height differences in direct proximity to Kassel city centre. The old museum had to be connected with the new one by designing the surrounding grounds.
