The Museum of the 20th Century
Between Scharoun and Mies van der Rohe
“The Museum of the 20th Century and Its Urban Integration” is an ideas competition for a new museum dedicated to the art of the 20th century to be erected between the Neue Nationalgalerie and the Philharmonie in Berlin. The new museum is intended to house art from the extensive Nationalgalerie collection, which is currently distributed throughout various museums in the city. In particular the new building will allow for the inclusion of the Marx, Pietzsch, and Marzona Collections, as well as works from the Kupferstichkabinett. Central to the competition brief were not only an extensive list of requirements for the operation of a museum of this scale, but an equally important consideration of the larger urban and landscape contexts of Berlin and to the Kulturforum in particular.
