The ‘Museum aan de Stroom’ (MAS) is the newest and largest museum in Antwerp. It’s actually more than a museum: a 60 meter tall building with museum halls, a watch depot, a prestigious temporary exhibition, a vertical town gallery, a panorama deck, a studio, a Michelin 2 star restaurant, a museum café, a museum square and four pavilions.
Heijmerink Wagemakers has realized in good cooperation with B-architects and Meyvaert the exhibition ‘Life and Death‘ on the 7th floor. In order to present the art collection as a theatre, show cases with large dimensions (7 meters cross-cut and over 4 meters tall) have been constructed. Unique for these show cases is the fact that no profile and/or profile hang and hinges are visible.
