Shout Out: John Pawson turns WWII bunker into museum for The Feuerle Collection

British architect John Pawson was tasked with taking a Berlin World War II-era bunker and creating a museum for the Feuerle Collection. 

The end result is a breathtaking site for the Collection, which is dedicated to Desire Feuerle’s collection of international contemporary artists, Imperial Chinese furniture and Southeast Asian sculptures.

Until you enter the vast main exhibition room there is no natural light and the place is left in near darkness, forcing you to readjust all your senses to negotiate the space. Your eyes are then attracted to the ingeniously curated spotlights and centuries-old stone and wood sculptures from the Khmer Empire that seem to appear from nowhere.
