Japanisches Palais – The Kunstkammer as a working collection

The spring workshop of the aac Academy for Architectural Culture was focused on the Japanische Palais— the last element in Dresden’s museum landscape that still requires refurbishment. Under the guidance of Meinhard von Gerkan and Stephan Schütz, the scholarship students developed designs that open the building towards Neustadt and the River Elbe, and convert the Japanische Palais into a contemporary “working collection” in which the general public is involved in the process of artistic creation. From August 15, 2019, the results will be shown in the exhibition entitled Visions for the Future at the Japanische Palais in Dresden.
