On 1 June, the refurbished Neue Nationalgalerie was awarded the European Architectural Heritage Intervention Award in the category of Built Heritage. The jury honoured the project fore returning the Mies van der Rohe-designed building to its original state: “It is a meticulous intervention down to the very last technical detail, resulting in a powerful architectural statement. It represents architecture, heritage and intervention at their finest.” David Chipperfield Architects Berlin restored the modernist masterpiece without compromising the building’s original appearance and strove for a balance between conservation and contemporary requirements. The museum re-opened to the public in August 2021.
