Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie overhaul is over

The refurbishment of the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, an icon of twentieth-century architecture, is now complete.

Designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin has been dedicated to the art of the twentieth century since its opening in 1968. After fifty years of ageing, intensive use and sporadic repairs, the building required complete refurbishment and modernisation. The existing fabric has been preserved and services upgraded with minimal visual compromise to the building’s original appearance.

The museum will re-open to the public in August 2021.
