Berlin Neue Nationalgalerie, Three Way Piece No. 2: The Archer» by Henry Moore


Ludwig Mies van der Rohe was already living in America when he was commissioned by the Berlin Senate in 1962 to build the Neue Nationalgalerie a new home for 20th Century modern art in the heart of West Berlin.  The International Style building opened in ’68.

Fifty years took its toll, a refresh, repair and upgrade was needed to meet the expectations of the modern gallery visitor alongside a desperately needed upgrade to the fabric of the building. Berlin’s Monument Authority, Landesdenkmalamt, commissioned architect and 2023 Laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize,  David Chipperfield to ‘preserve the landmark’s visual appearance and to retain as much of the historical building fabric as possible.’ In August 2021 (can there be a more challenging time to welcome people to freely roam a public space) the Neue Nationalgalerie at the Kulturforum reopened.
