Architecture: Moritzburg Museum Extension by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos: “..an extension to a museum inside a ruined castle..The architects inserted the extension above the 15th century stonework of the Moritzburg Museum, providing a roof to the previously open-air top floor..A new floor suspended from the centre of this roof creates an additional exhibition area without bringing any columns into the main gallery..The extension also includes the addition of a trapezium-shaped metal entrance..” Inspiring, yet somehow eerie, contemporary extension to the ruins of a German castle..
