Museum of the 20th Century Berlin

The design for the Museum of the 20th Century on Berlin’s Kulturforum proposes a closed stone volume above a glass joint that takes up the contour lines and materials of the neighbouring National Gallery, thus linking the structures into an ensemble. The horizontal glass joint forms a threshold-free accessible public space – a circumferential gesture of invitation in the urban space. Calm and reserved on the outside, the museum opens up to surprising spatial experiences on the inside. The two-dimensional building occupies the undefined expanse of the Kulturforum and strengthens Matthäikirchplatz through its spatial frame. The large plane tree is integrated into the concept and shields the protected open space in the museum.
