Porsche Museum, Suttgart

The Porsche Museum designed by Delugan Meissl is a contextual response to the city - located on an conspicuous junction in the industrial outskirts of Stuttgart. I like the non-referential heroic form. The raised mass is revolutionary as it makes all 6 sides of the building a facade. In comparison, the Mercedes Benz Museum by UN studio remains a conventional architectural solution, both in the way it resolves the circulation problem and the referential mass (to the MB logo).
