The Wunderkammer

The Wunderkammer - cabinet of wonders - is a place to inspire. In the 17th century, it was a manifestation of the urge to collect, but never merely an accumulation of objects. The Wunderkammer is a space filled with ideas and memories, a trigger to the imagination, a device to let the mind wander to faraway places.

For a fascinating look at the mind of the collector:

"The Wunderkammer space is grounded in the need for imprecise, fluent forms of categorising inspirational objects as observed in our fieldwork of architectural practice. We look at the Wunderkammer as both a result and object of architect-users' imaginations, and as an attempt at supporting their practices of collecting, archiving and searching inspirational material and using it for communicating the design concept. It also explores different approaches to the graphical design of the Wunderkammer space and their suitability for different situations of use."
