Messner Mountain Museum at Plan de Corones Proposal

Zaha Hadid Architects recently announced they are building the sixth and final Messner Mountain Museum at Plan de Corones, South Tyrol, Italy which is set to be completed in the summer of 2014. In collaboration with Reinhold Messner, one of the world’s most renowned mountaineers, as well as Kronplatz, the largest ski resort in the region, the Messner Mountain Museum (MMM Corones) is embedded within Mount Kronplatz. A composition of fluid, interconnected volumes, the 1000 sq. m. MMM Corones design is carved within the mountain and informed by the geology and topography of its context

  1. Very interesting article and picture. I like how to building looks like its coming out of the mountain.

  2. This is an interesting way of responding to the context of the site. Designing a museum where most of it is underground is a unique idea.
