15.12.2020Neue Nationalgalerie nears completion

With the roof and façade of the Neue Nationalgalerie now revealed for the first time in several years, an important step on the way to the museum’s re-opening has been reached. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the key handover ceremony for the Neue Nationalgalerie has recently had to be postponed to April 2021. Its re-opening to the public is planned for later in the year.

Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie is one of the icons of twentieth-century architecture. Inaugurated 15 September 1968, David Chipperfield Architects Berlin was appointed to refurbish the building in 2012.
