This paper examines the design of a museum to house the collection of the Lower Austrian Provincial Gallery and the buildings integration into its urban environment. The site chosen for the building occupies 6,408 sqm and boasts a prominent position between the art mile and the landing stage. The museums two large structures are to serve both as a landmark and as a connection between the museums and the landing stage, thereby linking the Danube with the museum and the old city of Stein. What makes the design special is that it dispenses with traditional stories and, instead, opts for a double helix in its layout and is therefore both path and exhibition space. It thus makes a linear space, which does not require a lot of floor area possible, and provides the opportunity to walk through the entire exhibition in one stretch. The two buildings include the museum with a roof-top café, an education area, a small library with a reading room, and a tourist information office.
