Architect: Graber Pulver Architekten (Marco Graber, Thomas Pulver), Zürich

The gene­rous open­ness of the entrance building rep­res­ents the variety of exhibits from over a hundred cultures from five con­tin­ents. The above-ground part of the building is a roof con­struc­tion con­sisting of geo­me­tric facade and window ele­ments. The major part of the museum where the exhibit rooms are located is up to 10 metres below street level. This is why the museum is referred to as architectural iceberg.
The pro­mi­nent diamond-shaped facade win­dows are motor-driven Par­allel-Pro­je­c­ting win­dows for which we especi­ally desi­gned and manu­factured the hard­ware. The Par­allel-Pro­je­c­ting fric­tion stays are a special ver­sion. The window sashes with a size of 1250 x 4200 mm and a weight of 110 kg feature a retrac­ting dis­tance of 200 mm.
