The TMW Technical Museum has a Pond-Like Appeal

I have no doubt that the infamous Frank Lloyd Wright influenced the design of the TMW Technical Museum by Querkraft Architects. The new foyer of the Austrian institution has been encased in glass and outfitted with a number of colossal lily pad-like columns reminiscent of those found in the Johnson Wax Building over two generations before.

Incredibly, the futuristic pier forms look as avant-garde as ever, and succeed in supporting the ceiling, controlling the acoustics of the room and providing public seating on their white, glass-fiber reinforced plastic. Offering the interior experience of being underwater, the TMW Technical Museum looks to the past and the future for compelling architectural expression.
