This project provides extended exhibition space for Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum in order to accommodate exhibitions of contemporary art.

The architecture of proposed building responds to the existing sequence of linearly added volumes of permanent exhibition pavilions, differing in use of materials with corrugated zinc panel being used as a fasáde cladding. The height of new pavilion is adjusted to harmonize with the overall composition of whole museum complex. Internally, pavillion offers to visitors direct visual contact with the river Danube. The exposure of whole interior space is north-eastern, facing the river. The main entrance with terrace and boardwalk overlooking the Danube is followed by reception, wardrobe and toilettes. The main exhibition space proposed on two levels is organised as a sequence of linearly added exhibition rooms alongside the river.

Although The Contemporary Art Pavilion is operating as a part of Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum, the proposed layout enables also its independent use.
