The Wunderkammer de Brotes is a new museum constructed in northern Austria with a fascinating and stunning spiral design. The museum was constructed for a company that specializes in the production of bread and is designed to showcase products and bring back to life the history of breadmaking.
The building is comprised of two main components that showcase the innovative and artistic approach of this design. A box shaped structure made of cast-in-place concrete that serves as the base of the building are where lectures, events and workshops can take place, where floating above a two story free form exhibition made of stainless steel shingles which clad its rounded wooden structure exists.
The museum surrounds a circular atrium with a spiral staircase where visitors can view the exhibition from many different angles. The exhibition includes a variety of objects and paintings relating to the history and production of bread. A skylight naturally illuminates the inside of the building. From the outside, the unique structure resembles a metallic spiraling loaf of bread seemingly rising up as if it were baking in an oven.
A beautiful and innovative architectural design showcasing the main star of the show, which of course is bread and orchestrating this intention through its design!
