Haus der Geschichte Bonn

The Haus der Geschichte is an open- multi-layered building accessed via a central foyer. The tour leads through four halls at a number of exhibition levels connected by ramps. The exhibition follows a chronological pattern.
In contrast to the complex arrangement of the rooms, the structural details have been reduced to plain motifs, the materials limited to granite, exposed concrete and concrete bricks for the walls, stainless steel and wood for the rails, basalt and terrazzo for the floors. A consistent lighting of the exhibition rooms with daylight was what had characterised the architects’ blueprint submitted for the competition.
The diversity of the exhibits makes preservation rather difficult in terms of lighting, however. The objective of a chronological presentation means there are many light-sensitive exhibits and vivid elements that only come into their own in bright light next to each other. To take account of this, the roof windows contain a system of prisms that filters out the direct sunlight but lets through the indirect light. Particularly light-sensitive objects get special protection, too.
