David Chipperfield Architects and Julian Harrap Architects have completed the renovation of the Neues Museum in Berlin, Germany. The 20,500 square metre building was open to the public in October last year and will house Egyptian artifacts. Located on Museum Island, the museum was originally completed in 1849 but was bombed during the Second World War and has lain derelict since. “Given this evocative yet inaccessible space, the restoration of the Neues Museum follows a principle of conservation rather than reconstruction,” explain David Chipperfield Architects, who were commissioned to masterplan the area twelve years ago."
