Entrance: the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin

A new post in the series of portraits of entrances in museums.  In the case of the Deutsches Historisches Museum in Berlin, the reception desk is an island in the middle of a vaste space surrounded by a glass façade that opens the museum to the street and disolves the limits between inside and outside.

Staircases up and down organize the first instants of the visitor's flow, though the emptiness is significantly disconcerting to find the way in to the exhibit rooms.

This entrance acts more as an sculptural space than a welcome service to visitors.
