Zeppelin Museum

Friedrichshafen/1994 – 1996

The landing place in Friedrichshafen harbor is one of the very few examples of modernist architecture in the Lake Constance region. In 1996, the Zeppelin Museum reopened its gates in the converted landing place (Hafenbahnhof).

The exhibition design emphasises the weightless character of airships, as well as associations such as distance, internationality and luxury. The museum focuses on a limited number of carefully chosen exhibits. The widespread use of aluminum in conjunction with showcases and plinths that appear to float on air underline this idea. A walk-in replica of a segment of the LZ 129 Zeppelin and large projected images bring the huge dimensions of these »giants of the air« to life.
