Messner Mountain Museum Corones by Zaha Hadid Architects

Aug 3, 2020

Located the summit plateau of Plan de Corones in the Italian Alps, the sixth and final museum dedicated to the career of Reinhold Messner has been been completed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

MMM Corones is dedicated to traditional mountaineering, which has strongly influenced – and has been strongly influenced by – Reinhold Messner. The museum is devoted to mountain history and also offers unique views of the great mountain walls of the Dolomites and the Alps. At the edge of the most magnificent viewing platform in South Tyrol, in the distinctive museum building created by Zaha Hadid, the view goes beyond the borders of South Tyrol to all points of the compass: from the Lienz Dolomites in the east to the Ortler in the west, from the Marmolada in the south to the Zillertal Alps in the north.

The idea is that visitors can descend within the mountain to explore its caverns and grottos, before emerging through the mountain wall on the other side, out onto the terrace overhanging the valley far below with spectacular, panoramic views.” — Zaha Hadid
