Museum August Macke Haus, Germany (GER)

Short but memorable was the life of August Macke in Bonn. Now the historical residential building of the artist was expanded with a modern extension in form of an impressive glass facade of 332 m2 and Offers visitors after the reopening in December 2017 not only glimpses into the private facilities but also insights into the Studio of the artist. Simultaneously, the new construction shows ever-changing special exhibitions. Digital printed TG-PROTECT® made of TG-ESG®-H was used in the glass facade with a self-portrait of Macke. Additionally, TG-THERM®plus and TG-THERM®sun glass was used whereby some panes are equipped with an integrated alarm strip. The installed panes have a size of up to 4,026 x 1,976 mm.
