La Fondazione Prussian Cultural Heritage bandisce un concorso per realizzare un museo del XX secolo, ampliando la famosa Neue Nationalgalerie di Berlino, opera di Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

A museum of international standing is to be created for the art of the 20th century at the behest of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation SPK. For the first time in decades, the newly created museum complex Neue Nationalgalerie - Museum of the 20th Century will enable the collection of the Nationalgalerie, so far only exhibited to the public in parts, to be presented in an adequate fashion.

The internationally important holdings of the Nationalgalerie of 20th century art, the Marx and Pietsch collections, the Marzona archive and works from the Museum of Prints and Drawings will be permanently and jointly exhibited for the first time. The presentation of the holdings will embrace the lower level of the Neue Nationalgalerie and - first and foremost - the exhibition spaces of the new building.

The new building will thus form a tightly circumscribed unity with the Neue Nationalgalerie in content and function. Both establishments - the Neue Nationalgalerie and the new building - are meanwhile to be understood as autonomous architectures with their own entrances, own functional areas (exhibition spaces, administrations, foyers, visitor services, etc.) and their respective own identities.

The location of the new museum at the Kulturforum, in the direct vicinity of two of Germany‘s most important architectural icons of the 20th century (Neue Nationalgalerie, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1968 and Philharmonie, Hans Scharoun, 1963).


The competition is held as an open ideas competition for bidding consortiums of architects with landscape architects in keeping with the guidelines for planning competitions (RPW 2013). Urban planners are eligible to take part in a bidding consortium with architects and landscape architects. The competition will be announced in the supplement of the Official Journal of the European Union and is open worldwide without restrictions. The competition entries will remain anonymous until the conclusion of the procedure.

The competition organiser intends to hold a non-open realisation competition for the Museum of the 20th Century after the competition for ideas. The realisation competition is intended to involve ca. 40 - 60 working groups of architects and landscape architects as well as further disciplines, as the case may be. The prize winners of the competition for ideas will be qualified as competitors for the realisation competition (possibly augmented by further disciplines). A further 8 - 12 working groups will be invited to take part in the realisation competition by the competition organiser.
