Messner Mountain Museum
Living material in historical surroundings.
The Messner Mountain Museum, Firmian.
Sigmundskron Castle can be seen from miles around, enthroned on a cliff top overlooking the city of Bolzano. The medieval fortress was left to ruin until the creation of the Messner Mountain Museum, which tells of the origins, vastness and conquests of the mountains.
The as much fascinating as difficult task of making the historical fortification accessible once more was incumbered upon architect Werner Tscholl. His creed: respect for the structure steeped in history, a linear concept and reliable partners.
With this in mind, ewo was confronted with the task of creating lights which would do justice to the historical surroundings with as little shape and colour as possible. The basic character of the lights which were developed, the simplicity of
their steel profiles, as well as the changing colour of the rust, blends in with the reddish porphyry of the castle.
