The Quadrat museum complex opened in 1983 is on the edge of the city centre. The ensemble consists of four buildings, accommodating Josef-Albers-Museum, moderne Galerie, Museum für Ur- und Ortsgeschichte (pre-history and local history museum) and a media centre.
The existing local history museum was completed by three cubes of the same edge length of 21m. The new two-storey buildings with their 2D, strictly geometrical exterior structure contrast with the bricks of the existing building they are connected with by a passageway.
The steel frame cubes open up toward the outside through large glass areas. Inside, the rooms are not “closed” either, but make for ever new vistas. Visitors access the ensemble via the central media room.
