Museum der Bildenden Künste, Leipzig Germany

Karl Hufnagel, Peter Pütz and Michael Rafaelian designed the Leipzig museum of art, completed in 2004. The previous museum was destroyed in a British air raid in WW2, and was the scene of a Nazi attack on "degenerate" art. The rectangular form of the new 74.5 million euro museum is inspired by the old structure, but it takes on a contemporary form of block units and modern materials. A thin exoskeleton seems like scaffolding, giving the impression that the structure is still in work. Locals either call it a shining diamond or ugly block.
