    Project: Neues Museum Restoration
    Location: Berlin, Germany
    Architect: David Chipperfield Architects, in collaboration with Julian Harrap Architects
    Client: Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation
    Contractor: Federal Office for Building and Regional Planning
    Contract Value: €200 million
    Date of Occupation: October 2009
    Gross internal area: 20,500 square meters (221,000 square feet)

    The Neues Museum — originally Prussia's answer to Britain's Great Exhibition of 1851 — was badly damaged in World War II. The restored museum houses Egyptian and prehistory/ early-history archaeological collections, and is a center for active scientific research as well as public dissemination.

    This duality lay at the heart of the project organization. A unique integration of client and science, together with a close collaboration between Chipperfield's and conservation architects Julian Harrap, has resulted in an exceptionally coherent and holistic piece of architecture.   >>>
