Essen: Chipperfield, Comics & Café Köller
back home from the Ruhr Region. here's one photo i really like, and that also gives an idea of Essen: this mix of local and international atmosphere: Happy New Ears next to Hoffmanns Erzählungen. and just steps from there: a modern museum of old and new art, designed by David Chipperfield, and named: Folkwang.
no photos allowed inside, but here's one from the entry area that gives an idea: inside merging with outside
and here is a youtube-clip: Museum Folkwang
in contrast to the modern art and architecture, a moment from the old centry of the city:
the "Burgplatz" with historic statue.
some more mixed moments from Essen, below: statue, comic fair, you are here, drive..
