The 28 September issue of the New York Times carries a feature on the Neue Nationalgalerie, in which David Chipperfield talks to Gerrit Wiesmann about the challenges of restoring one of Mies van der Rohe’s greatest and latest works. The gallery, which first opened in 1967, has been painstakingly stripped back down to its frame, in order to preserve its original features while updating its facilities to contemporary standards. This €100 million refurbishment by David Chipperfield Architects Berlin is due to be completed in 2019.
