The Bündner Kunstmuseum - a balancing act between tradition and modernity

Description

The Bündner Kunstmuseum (Graubünden Museum of Art) consists of two buildings - the neoclassical Villa Planta from 1875 and the extension by the architects Barozzi & Veiga from the 2016. The Villa Planta is one of the most important 19th-century buildings in Graubünden and one of the most magnificent works by the architect Johannes Ludwig. With its partially sumptuous decor, it stands in contrast to the striking yet simple new building. The Palladian style and the Orientalist building design that constitute the essential characteristic of the Villa Planta are taken up and given new architectural expression by the extension building.
