The Mudam was built at the old Fort Thüngen, near the Place de l’Europe, on the Kirchberg plateau. The huge windows and skylights flood the galleries with natural light. The museum clearly bears the characteristics of previous Pei structures with its angular geometry and use of steel and glass. The museum's opening had been postponed several times, not least because the glass palace was difficult to fill adequately, especially in view of the absence of a permanent collection. Ieoh Ming Pei describes his plan for the Musée d‘Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean as follows: “The most important aspect that seduced me was the changing play between past and present, past and future. At the Fort Thüngen, with the Trois Glands, the past is there and I admire the work of Vauban, who built the foundations. What interests me is how to harmonize the past and the present so that they mutually reinforce each other.“
