The Museum für Angewandte Kunst (in short MAK) shows 20th century design in a great post-WWII building, designed in 1957 by Cologne architect Rudolf Schwarz. Originally this building was designed for the the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and later housed Museum Ludwig. The design department gives visitors the opportunity to study design in its close relationship with works of fine art. Under the title 'Art + Design in Dialogue' the new permanent design exhibition highlights the complex interplay between design and art and contextualize it within it's political social and artistic framework. 20th century design by pioneering designers, juxtaposed with outstanding works of fine art. The building was sensitively renovated by the Cologne architect Walter Lom in 1983.
