Berlin-based Sauerbruch Hutton are acutely aware of the importance of colour and its ability to delight. This exhibition illustrates the practice’s newest building, the Museum for the Brandhorst Collection in Munich. Highly individual, with a signature façade, the museum is typical of the extraordinary work of Sauerbruch Hutton. Its distinctive exterior is clad in vertical ceramic louvres and glazed in families of eight colours that envelop a folded metal skin of two different hues. The effect is a kaleidoscope of pixelated colour that oscillates as you walk around the building.
10am—6pm every day except Friday
