A milestone of modern architecture

When approaching from the factory gates or indeed from the eastern fringe of Stuttgart, a view of a unique new building is awaiting the visitor. Designed by UN Studio, one of the world’s most highly esteemed architectural firms, the museum would be worth a visit for its architecture alone.

Ben van Berkel, co-founder and director of UN Studio: “The Mercedes-Benz Museum combines a number of radical spatial principles with each other and thereby creates a completely new typology.”

The most conspicuous feature resulting from this novel approach is the route visitors take. Their tour of exploration does not start at ground level in the entrance area but at the topmost level where they are taken by lifts. From here, they can go on one of two tours running through the museum from the top downwards. The two routes meet at each level so that the visitor can decide time and again anew whether to continue on the Legend or Collection tour.
