Museum of the 20th Century
BERLIN, GERMANY, 27 October 2016 - Herzog & de Meuron has been announced as the winner of the competition to realise the Museum of the 20th Century in Berlin. The winning proposal was chosen from 40 international submissions. The President of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation, Hermann Parzinger, said “this design considers museum architecture with a completely new approach and will write history”.

The Museum of the 20th Century will be built at the Berlin Kulturforum, located next to the Berliner Philharmonie and the Neue Nationalgalerie. The project will be realised in collaboration with Vogt Landschaftsarchitekten.

The proposals for the design competition will be shown in the Kulturforum from 18 November 2016 to 8 January 2017.
