A New Building for the Nationalgalerie

The Competition for the Museum of the 20th Century

In the coming years, the Museum of the 20th Century will be erected based on plans by award-winning architects, Herzog & de Meuron at the Kulturforum in Berlin, between the Neue Nationalgalerie (by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe), and the Philharmonie (by Hans Scharoun).

The Nationalgalerie of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin will then be in the position to present its collection of art of the twentieth century in its breadth and complexity—from painting to video art and installation, to performative works.

With this volume, the contractor of the building, the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz, documents the idea and execution competition.

Featuring the work of many influential architectural practices including: OMA, Zaha Hadid, Sou Fujimoto, David Chipperfield, SANAA (Sejima & Nishizawa), Herzog & de Meuron, and OFFICE (Geers & Severen).
