Porsche Museum in Stuttgart – Germany designed by Delugan Meissl

Arch2O Porsche Museum 01

I do not think that is someone out there that never heard of Porsche, read, heard, saw or even drove one.
Porsche is well known for high performance engines, outstanding handling characteristics, and classic design. Porsche’s always incorporate the latest in automotive technology and many times Porsche actually invents the technology that everyone else copy’s later.

They stand the test of time. They are the gold standard of the automotive world.

Further on we will present you some stats from Porsche itself.

Auto fans around the world know that the traditional site of Porsche AG is in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen. Seventy years ago the erstwhile Porsche engineering office relocated from downtown Stuttgart to the first, newly built Porsche plant in Zuffenhausen. This is where the trial series of what became the “VW Beetle” was built in 1938, as was the forefather of all Porsche sports cars, the Type 64 “Berlin–Rome Car,” in 1939.Porsche Museum in Stuttgart – Germany designed by Delugan Meissl contemporary display of modern design

With the start of standard production of the Porsche Type 356 this Stuttgart suburb became the birthplace of the sports cars bearing the Porsche logo in 1950. Today, the 911 model series and Boxster models as well as all Porsche engines are produced in Zuffenhausen. And Porsche’s museum is located here, on Porscheplatz. At this historic location, it joins the Porsche plant and the Porsche Center as the new emblem of the company.

The edifice by Vienna’s Delugan Meissl Associated Architects is an eye-catcher. The fascinating impact of the monolithic, virtually floating exhibition hall can be felt. This bold and dynamic architecture reflects the company’s philosophy. It is designed to convey a sense of arrival and approachability, and to guide the visitors smoothly from the basement level into the superstructure – this is how the architects express their dedication.

In their design, the architects at Delugan Meissl set out to create a place of sensuous experience that reflects the authenticity of Porsche products and services as well as the company’s character, while also reshaping Porscheplatz with an unmistakable appearance.

In July of 2004 the decision was reached to launch the most spectacular building project in the history of Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG. A total of 170 architectural firms from all over Europe had originally vied for the job to build the new museum. Ten of these firms were ultimately invited to formally bid on the job, and the Viennese firm of Delugan Meissl Associated Architects won the bid in February 2005. Actual construction began in October of that year.

At the turn of the year 2006/07, the so-called basement and the core of the building were completed. By that point in time, about 21,000 cubic meters of concrete had been used for the underground garage, ground floor, second floor, and central support beams. The steel structure supporting the exhibition space, which spans 5,600 square meters, was successfully completed in the fall of 2007. The installation of building systems and the interior work began during the same season.

On December 2008, finally, the Museum was handed over to Porsche exactly on time. The opening of the Porsche Museum took place on Saturday 31 January 2009.
