Location

Just outside Düsseldorf - in the Hombroich cultural area - the Japanese start architect Tadao Ando has created an impressive architectural experience. Since September 2004, the museum of the Langen Foundation has not only been a first-class adress for exhibitions, but also offers an exclusive environment for events. The architecture is a masterpiece of glass, concrete and steel, in which visitors experience a fascinating interplay of inside and outside, of art and nature, light and shadow. Like in no other place, art, culture and communication form a unity here, so that you can prepare great hours and lasting impressions for your guests.

Use the individuality of the Langen Foundation and create an unforgettable event.

 

Moderne 1

The space bodies Moderne 1 and Moderne 2 were deliberately built six meters deep into the earth by Tadao Ando. The sensitive embedding in the surrounding landscape was a central idea. Inside, the play of spaces, proportions, light guides and path connections captivates the visitor. The two large room cubes are primarily dedicated to modern and contemporary art. Moderne 1 is the largest room and a place for encounter in the Langen Foundation. Moderne 1 and Moderne 2 are directly connected to each other on the level "minus 6 meters" below the galleries of Moderne 3. From this level all the important facilities are directly accessible.

 

 

Moderne 2

Parallel to and directly connected to Moderne 1 is Moderne 2. A special feature of this second-largest room at the Langen Foundation is the two-step ramp that runs the entire length of the room and leads to the mezzanin floor. For receptions the Moderne 2 can accommodate up to 200 guests, and for long table setting/seated meals, it can accomodate up to 120 guests. Parallel use of the two large rooms is ideal. For example, Moderne 2 is often used in combination with Moderne1 for lunches during conferences. All important facilities are directly accessible.

 

 

Moderne 3

A very special room is Moderne 3, where the sculptural character of the architecture comes into its own particularly well. As a gallery on an intermediate level, the gallery has a more intimate character than the two larger rooms. It is open to Moderne 1 and Moderne 2 and offers great views into the two exhibition rooms. A floor-to-ceiling window opening above the open staircase, an offset side window and narrow window slits open up the view to the outside and provide natural light in the space.

 

Japanraum

The Japan Room extends like a house in a house within the long streched glass veranda. The circumferential walkway under glass with an unobstructed view of the landscape symbolizes a bow to nature for the architect Tadao Ando and shows his affinity with the architecture of Japanese wooden terraces.The Japan Room itself is a concrete cube with exposed concrete facing the glass veranda and tinted plaster on the interior exhibition walls. The room houses in particular Japanese exhibits from the Langen Collection and its characterized by its contemplative power.
