A museum for the Peter and Gudrun Selinka Art Collection should provide a visible and tangible envelope for exhibitions. Windows interrupt the façade only in specific places. The corporeal character of the architecture is conveyed by means of the roof’s brick shell, which simultaneously shows as ceiling vaults on the upper level. The bricks were obtained from the demolition of a nearby monastery, with their reuse referencing to the sustainability of the architectural project. The building naturally blends in with the cityscape that has developed over centuries.
 
Jury Statement, Pavol Panak, Slovakia
The outstanding quality of this project lies in the certain timelessness of its appearance, of its architecture. It’s not strikingly fancy or modern architecture, it’s timeless. I think a very important role was played by its recycled brick from the demolition of a former monastery, so it’s reused brick. In the gallery we need a certain mass of the walls of the structure to keep the climate stable internally, and therefore it’s logical that the brick is used as a wrapping shell for the mass of the building.On the top floor of the exhibition spaces there is a very interesting warped structure made in a new way. The highest architectural quality is the double-meaning of its appearance; it’s new and old in the same moment.
