In The Digital Enterprise , Max Hollein, Director of the Städel Museum in Frankfurt described his museum’s digital journey.
They are allowing visitors from all around the world to take a “digital stroll” through their collection with links to multimedia content for individual artists and works of art. Additionally, they are also rethinking physical exhibits as consumers get exposed to all kinds of design innovations.
I took my wife to the museum during our visit to Germany. While she enjoyed the old Masters section I walked through the new underground gallery that was designed by the architects Schneider+Schumacher with lighting from 200 skylights in the lawn above.
I also walked the lawn which also features artist Adolf Luther's glass circles in foreground and circle mirrors in background.
The elevator which takes you to the basement gallery was 18 foot tall - another nice museum piece!
