Architecture for art

05 Oct 2018

At the end of October 2016, the proposals by the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron won the design competition for the Museum of the 20th Century in Berlin’s Kulturforum. The preliminary design has been completed and interested members of the public now have the opportunity to view the results: the Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron will present their current plans for the first time in public on Tuesday 9 October at 7 pm in the St. Matthäus-Kirche.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion with Hilde Léon, architect, expert judge and member of the advisory board, Udo Kittelmann, director of the Nationalgalerie, and Joachim Jäger, director of the Neue Nationalgalerie. In the future, the collections of the 20th-century National Gallery will be exhibited in the new building and in the neighbouring Neue Nationalgalerie.

Admission to the event is free of charge.
