contributed by Mieke

When approaching the city of Stuttgart from the eastern side, right next to highway B14 ermerges the new Mercedes Benz Museum. The structure of the museum is based on a cloverleaf. The semi-circular floors rotate around the central atrium forming horizontal plateaus which alternate between double and single heights. The museumconcept is based on two different exhibitionflows. One being the Collection rooms, which are exposed and day-lit, surrounded by huge, panoramic windows. The other consisting of historical displays, Legend rooms, theatrical spaces, sheltered and artificial lit. The Museum experience begins with visitors traveling up through the atrium in one of the three, capsule like, elevators. At the top floor the visitor may take one of the two spiralling main paths down, that unfold chronologically as they descend through the building. Intersecting with each other at several points, like strands of a DNA helix, allowing the visitor to change routes all the time.
