The new interior of the Museum of the Constitutions sets out to appeal to the general public and especially to young visitors. The design is dominated by free-standing, up to nine metres high, dynamically shaped constructions that divide the space into different thematic and service areas. The structural frame was built with birch plywood and the flexible plywood cover with native pines and teak veneers from sustainable forestry. The design and production relied on CAD modeling and CNC production methods in combination with highly skilled manual labour.
Statement by the Jury
The inviting redesign of this museum impresses because of its dynamic design vocabulary in conjunction with the use of natural materials.
