After nearly fifty years of use, the Neue Nationalgalerie was extensively refurbished and modernised from 2015 until 2020.
The Neue Nationalgalerie (1965-1968) is the last major project completed by the internationally famous architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. His long-term preoccupation with creating fluid, open spaces culminated in the design of the glazed upper pavilion of the gallery. The architect died shortly after the building’s inauguration. With its steel roof and gracefully austere architectural language, the Neue Nationalgalerie not only stands as an icon of modernism, but as testament to a visionary architect of the twentieth century.
