Neues Museum
David Chipperfield Architects
Berlin, Germany

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.
