On Friday 2 February, the Berlin office of David Chipperfield Architects presented their plans for the refurbishment of the south and south-west buildings of the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, along with the proposed re-establishment of its southern cloister wing. The two listed buildings, which border the city wall, date from the mid-twentieth and late nineteenth century respectively. The announcement took place at a press conference held jointly with the Germanisches Nationalmuseum.
This weekend, the museum will be open for tours and visits before the temporary closure of the two buildings. The proposals will be on display and members of the David Chipperfield Architects team will give talks about the project.
The re-opening of the buildings is planned for 2030.
