Bastian Gallery

The design of the Bastian Gallery has
been shaped by the idea of re-examining
prevailing contemporary notions of what
constitutes appropriate space for the view-
ing of art. The elegantly spare, rectilinear
volume is located among the mature trees
of a park in the Dahlem district of Berlin,
a rhythmic series of full-height openings,
edged in galvanised steel, punctuating its
sandstone facades. The elongated proporti-
ons of the composition are subtly enriched
by the vertical graining of the oak used for
doors and for ventilation elements.
