19.12.2017Behind the scenes at the James Simon Galerie

A short film, offering a look at the ongoing construction of the James Simon Galerie in Berlin, has been released by the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin (Berlin State Museums). The project is now at a key stage, with architectural work largely completed and work on the interiors starting. Project architect Urs Vogt leads a tour of the site, describing the relationship of the building to its wider context. The James Simon Galerie, which will form a new entrance to Museum Island and eventually provide access to the Pergamon, Bode-, Neues- and Altes-museums, is due to open in 2019.
