The ongoing refurbishment of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie is the subject of an eight-page article in this month’s Bauwelt magazine. The museum was completed in 1968 and is currently undergoing major renovation for the first time in its history. Every detail of the building has been closely scrutinised to maintain the integrity of the original. The article describes the challenges of the restoration and includes recent photographs from the construction site.
David Chipperfield Architects Berlin was appointed to the project in 2012. The museum closed for refurbishment in 2015 and is due to reopen in summer 2020.
