Berlin, Germany – The Würth Collection, which was founded in the 1970s by Reinhold Würth, today comprises more than 18,000 works of modern and contemporary art as well as a significant number of late medieval paintings and sculptures. It is one of the most important private art collections in Europe. Würth grants the general public free access to the Würth Collection through the Kunsthalle Würth in Schwäbisch Hall and 14 other museums and associated galleries across Europe. Every year, the exhibitions attract hundreds of thousands of visitors.
“This second construction phase will mark the completion of the Carmen Würth Forum, fulfilling Reinhold Würth’s vision to create a gathering place for the employees of Würth and the wider community beyond. It symbolises the connection between a place of work, its community and the surrounding environment, which the company has nurtured so impressively over the years,” said David Chipperfield, founder of David Chipperfield Architects.
