Art Stuff 08 Oct 2019

Austrian billionaire Heidi Horten is set to open her world-famous art collection to the public inside a building that will be called the Palais Goëss-Horten in Vienna.

Having just won a competition to design it, architectural firm The Next ENTERprise-Architects will transform Vienna’s Hanuschhof building – originally an annex to the Albrecht Palais – keeping its historical exterior, and converting its interior into a modern space that looks towards the future.

While the designs are still being finalized, the contemporary museum is expected to be completed by the beginning of 2022. Having first been exhibited in public at Vienna’s Leopold Museum in 2018 – where it was the museum’s most popular exhibition in its history – Heidi Horten’s collection is reported to include more than 500 works. The new museum will allow for her collection to be continuously viewed and enjoyed in the heart of Vienna.
