Halmstad Art Museum Halmstad, Sweden. Rick Shands, Architect Stockholm, Sweden 1989. This competition submission was for an art museum to be situated on the earthen berm fortification from the 1600's, adjacent to and making use of the town gate from the same period. The proposal creates a 'building as ruin', as if dissected and exposed at the entry hall. A steel bridge connects the lift, the upper room of the old brick gatehouse, and the new gallery spaces, which are built on mandated underground car parking within the berm.
