Il museo di Maastricht

Around 1990, the Bonnefantenmuseum got the opportunity to construct a new building on ‘Céramique’, a former industrial estate right on the banks of the Maas, opposite the old centre of Maastricht. For the realisation of an outstanding building on this location, the museum approached Aldo Rossi, who (in the words of Van Grevenstein, museum director at the time) “coupled great expressive inventiveness with a reserved visual language”.
