The Museum for Modern Art (MKM), now housed in the former Küppersmühle grain mill. The only new addition is the staircase, attached to the front of the building, which each year attracts many visitors keen to view its impressive architectural features. By virtue of its roof pitch, it forms a visual continuation of the main building. The winding stairtower - built from terracotta-coloured concrete and still bearing the visible traces of the formwork - draws our eyes inexorably upwards. Similarly, the broad terrazzo stairs furnish an invitation to ascend to the upper storeys. Designed especially for this section of the building, the light fittings take on the appearance of iridescent wax tapers. The meticulously hand-painted murals form an ideal counterpoint to the warm, terracotta tones and highlight the staircase as an autonomous architectural work of art.
