The roofs of Munich – models of historic architectural engineering
July 6 – October 14, 2018

Münchner Stadtmuseum

Roof structures are architecture’s unsung masterpieces. Architects have always had to design buildings in such a way that carpenters could roof them. Roofs thus reflect what was technically possible at a particular time and can tell us a great deal about a city’s history. Almost all of Munich’s historic roofs were destroyed in the Second World War. In cooperation with the Lehrstuhl für Baugeschichte, Historische Bauforschung und Denkmalpflege der TU München (Technical University of Munich’s Chair of Building History, Building Archaeology and Conservation), the Münchner Stadtmuseum has mounted an exhibition of Clemens Knobling’s large 1:20 scale wooden reconstructions of important roofs, including the Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) and the Armory.
