17.11.2015€20 million for Haus der Kunst

The German Bundestag has granted a €20 million support for the upcoming renovation of the Haus der Kunst in Munich. The overall support establishes the state and federal government as partners in the upgrade of the building and affirms the important role Haus der Kunst has of serving diverse audiences for contemporary art and culture worldwide. The architectural approach is being driven by a discussion of the institution’s current and future uses, with three prevalent aspects being: the building’s relationship to the surrounding urban space and the adjacent Englischer Garten; the museum’s programme; and the architecture of the existing building.

David Chipperfield Architects Berlin was appointed as architect for the refurbishment as a result of an international competitive bidding procedure in 2013. Work is estimated to start in 2017.
