Pinakothek der Moderne is a museum designed by the German architect Stephan Braunfels that was inaugurated in September 2002 after it took seven years to be completed. The museum’s rectilinear façade is dominated by white and grey concrete and interrupted by large windows and high rising columns. Those columns support the extensive canopied roof. Each of the four corners of the building, connected by a central rotunda, is dedicated to a special collection. The Museum is thus divided into Art (Kunst), Architecture (Architektur), Design (Design) and Works on Paper (Graphik).
