本项目作为一座新的艺术博物馆和一座公共文化建筑，难能可贵地在城市中创造了一个新节点，不仅改变了城市环境的平衡，更促进了其周边区域的发展。马尔默艺术博物馆（Moderna museet Malmö, Malmö Museum of Art）位于瑞典南部的马尔默，该地区自1900年起就作为电力工厂，各类工业建筑鳞次栉比，这也为本项目创造了一个设计的契机，即设计一座不拘泥于形式和色彩、具有实验性质的新艺术博物馆，作为斯德哥尔摩地区内现有主博物馆的一个补充。
A starting point was that a new art museum, a public and cultural building, represents a rare opportunity to create a new node within the city, the urban balance is changed and the neighborhood develops. In Malmö, in the south of Sweden, there was also the possibility to, starting from the industrial architecture of the former Electricity plant dating from the year 1900, create a new art museum with an informal and experimental character that would complement the main museum in Stockholm.

The greatest challenge posed by the project, (in addition to the demanding eighteen-month time limit from sketch-design to inauguration), was the need to adapt the existing industrial brick building to current climatic and security requirements to comply with the highest international standards for art exhibition spaces. It soon became clear that in reality what was needed was a building within a building, a contemporary addition within the existing shell. This radical reconstruction not only provided a challenge, but also gave the opportunity for something new.

Seen from the exterior a new extension marks the arrival of the new museum. The extension provides a new entrance and reception space, as well as a cafeteria and a new upper gallery. Its perforated orange façade both connects to the existing brick architecture and introduces a contemporary element to the neighborhood. The perforated surface gives the façade a visual depth, and is animated through the dynamic shadow patterns which it creates. The ground floor is fully glazed so that sunlight is screened through the perforated façade.

In relation to its context, the new addition plays with scale. From a distance it is only intelligible in comparison to the adjacent houses, only on close proximity the building and details can be read in its own right. The elimination of the standard ‘middle-scale’ strengthens the museum’s presence in the immediate urban setting, at the same time as letting the building appear as a signal establishing a relationship with Malmö as a whole.

Inside, the building has been spatially reconstructed. Two new staircases allow the visitor to move in a loop between the grand turbine hall and the upper exhibition rooms. The staircases are each enclosed between two walls, which functions to divide the program of the turbine hall into three separate spaces, housing in addition to exhibition spaces a children’s studio and a separate loading area (in fact also used for exhibitions).

与卡尔玛艺术博物馆（Kalmar Art Museum）一样，设计团队一直致力于提供一种灵活的、具有适应性的展览空间，使得艺术家和策展人能够根据需要，自行打造和布置展览场地。马尔默艺术博物馆则为他们提供了一系列白色的方盒子空间，从位于上层的通用尺度规模的画廊，到近11米高的独特的涡轮式大厅，空间充满灵活性。
As in Kalmar Art Museum, we have been committed to providing exhibition spaces which allow artists and curators to tailor the conditions to each individual exhibition. Moderna museet Malmö (Malmö Museum of Art) offers a series of white boxes; from the almost domestic scale of the upper gallery, to the Turbine Hall that boasts a unique space of almost eleven meters in height.
