Winners in £80m Berlin gallery ideas contest revealed

  • Comment

Ten anonymous, winning schemes have been announced in the ideas competition for a new £80 million museum of modern art in Berlin

The victorious teams – who are expected to be named within the next few days – will be invited to compete in a second, restricted competition opening in April to select a final design for the project.

Organised by the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, the contest sought ideas for a new 14,700m² standalone structure within the German capital’s Kulturforum district.

Planned to complete in 2021, the gallery will occupy a prominent plot next Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Neue Nationalgalerie and Hans Scharoun’s Berliner Philharmonie.

It will feature a permanent exhibition of modern artworks and an underground tunnel to the Neue Nationalgalerie which is undergoing a £70 million revamp by David Chipperfield Architects.

Expected to form a ‘unity’ with its iconic 1968 neighbour, the new building will also feature its own ‘autonomous’ entrance and identity – according to the brief.

Up to 60 teams will participate in the next competition with some invited and others qualifying following an invitation to tender.

A final winner will be announced at the end of this year.
