The design scheme for the museum reveals a dignified and sensitive addition to Franz von Lenbach's historic villa.

As Norman Foster has written:‘The history of our cities is the history of change – each age produces its own vocabulary and makes it own mark. Similarly, in buildings that have evolved over time the original layers of history can often be understood more readily when seen alongside the new. Sometimes we have to explore the past to find inspiration for the future.’
