LBGO LEUPOLD BROWN GOLDBACH
ARCHITEKTEN

In the heart of Berlin, adjacent to two of the most iconic architectural landmarks of the 20th century, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation has commissioned the construction of a contemporary art museum for the 21st century. The Neue Nationalgalerie is one of these iconic buildings and will be expanded and modernized to enhance its role as a globally renowned exhibition venue. This expansion will take place on an adjacent site, while adhering to contemporary architectural language and logic. A direct underground connection to the new build will be created via the semi-basements of the existing museum. The design of the new build harmoniously integrates with the Neue Nationalgalerie, creating a cohesive and functional unit that incorporates the gallery’s design elements: Foundation, roof and inner courtyard. These elements will be re-interpreted to meet the demands of the extension.
