As a continuation of Friedrich August Stüler's forum architecture, the New Entrance Building will complete the Museum Island ensemble between the Kupfergraben canal and the west facade of the Neues Museum.
The Neues Museum on Berlin's Museum Insel was designed by Friedrich August Stüler and built between 1841 and 1859. Extensive bombing during the Second World War left the building in ruins, with entire sections missing completely and others severely damaged. Few attempts at repair were made after the war, and the structure was left exposed to nature.
The apartments, a steel structure built around the silo, protrude into the light and the landscape like LEGO bricks.
Constructed of five sinuous bands of varying shades of weathered steel.
