n extention to the Museum of the Art The GĂśteborg Museum of Art in has an emblematic status in the city. Not only do the collections and temporary exhibition form an important part in the self-consciousness of the city, but the building is also one of the most important individuals in the cityscape. The building was once created in order to establish a firm ending of the city to the south, a replacement for the lost archway at Kungsportsplatsen. The location on the top of the hill was chosen in order to make it visible in the entire length of the new avenue. For the museum itself, the elevated position was more problematic, and several alterations have been made after the original building was inaugurated in 1923 in order to create better connections with GĂśtaplatsen. The extentionnew shall dock to the existing building. It shall contain exhibition spaces, a cafĂŠ, a shop with storage, an auditorium for 200 persons, workshops and offices. The proposed building must present a reflective attitude towards the original museum as well as to the extension from 1968 and to the estates on Ekmansgatan.


Inspired by the winning â&#x20AC;&#x153; Ares projectâ&#x20AC;? of 1924, we interpret the idea of a public courtyard as the core of the Museum. The project supposes emancipation of the main hall and extension gallery towards the backyard. The Art-forum is an interactive space for contemporary art experiences, public events and gatherings. The old fashioned way of passive exhibition is turned to an invitation for active participation.
