This design for a history museum in Peenemünde, a municipality located on the Baltic Sea island of Usedom in northeast Germany, reflects the need for the site to serve both as a memorial and a gathering place. In order to deal with this task, Jasper Architects focused on function as the primary factor for design decisions. The rectangular lot and its specifications yielded a rectangular prism that, when extruded, formed the basic volume of the building. The three necessary entrances were created by elevating the corners of the prism, and this folding and unfolding generated the iconic volume. The brass façade, with perforations that allow the light to pass through from the outside during the day and from the inside during the night, sets a field of tension. The interior of the museum is designed in white and gray tones that create a pleasant atmosphere and don't distract the visitor from the exhibits.
