Berlin

I have finally made it to see Chipperfield's re-design of the Neues Museum in Berlin.  Beautiful detailing and conversations between different materials made the museum as much as a show-piece as the artefacts inside.









In contrast, Chipperfield has been commissioned to renovate Berlin's Modern Art Museum, Neue Nationalgalerie, and had installed an art piece "Sticks and Stone's" in the galleries main space before the work commences in 2015.  I can't wait to see how he and his team tackle the Mies van der Rohe building.... possibly more challenging than the  Neues museum in terms of critics!


We checked out the exhibitions there, I hope the redesign helps the space, a little bit crowded for me! Just some detail snaps of art works below.







Berlin itself was lovely and autumnal, staying in the district of Kruzenberg, we checked out the riverside street market, great cafes and bars.  Very laid back there! We'll be back soon.
