The Lentos Kunstmuseum in Linz by Weber + Hofer is a striking example of volumetric clarity and an ideal spatial concept. With a length of 130 meters and a width of 30 meters, the oscillating three-story glass cube fits in perfectly with the surrounding architectural landscape along the Danube, where it lies like a "glass ship" at anchor in Linz. The structure provides 8,000 square meters of space for internationally renowned art, from the classical modern period to the present, along with an underground library, a museum shop, a restaurant, a café, and a bar. In the Kunstmuseum Lentos, the award-winning Swiss architect team of Jürg Weber and Josef Hofer have realized an outstanding architectural design that meets the highest structural, technical, and aesthetic standards. The Lentos was named the "Architectural Achievement of the Year" by the province of Upper Austria in 2003. Weber + Hofer also received the "Client's Prize" awarded by the Austrian government the same year.
