The new building will thus form a tightly circumscribed unity with the Neue Nationalgalerie in content and function. Both establishments - the Neue Nationalgalerie and the
new building - are meanwhile to be understood as autonomous architectures with their
own entrances, own functional areas (exhibition spaces, administrations, foyers, visitor
services, etc.) and their respective own identities. The target set for the new building is a
usable area of ca. 14,700 m (UA 1 - 6), ca. 9,200 m of which can be used as exhibition
spaces. The construction field at Potsdamer Strasse has a buildable area of ca. 10,200
m. The gross floor area expected, depending on the concept, is ca. 27,700 m, while
the clear room height in the exhibition areas needs to reach up to 9 m.

The location of the new museum at the Kulturforum, in the direct vicinity of two of
Germanys most important architectural icons of the 20th century (Neue Nationalgalerie,
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, 1968 and Philharmonie, Hans Scharoun, 1963), as well as
in the environs of further architectural monuments (St. Matthews Church, Berlin State
Library), calls for a particularly attentive architectural and development approach.

A museum of international standing is to be created for the art of the 20th century at the
behest of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation SPK. For the first time in decades,
the newly created museum complex Neue Nationalgalerie - Museum of the 20th Century
will enable the collection of the Nationalgalerie, so far only exhibited to the public in
parts, to be presented in an adequate fashion. The internationally important holdings of
the Nationalgalerie of 20th century art, the Marx and Pietsch collections, the Marzona
archive and works from the Museum of Prints and Drawings will be permanently and
jointly exhibited for the first time. The presentation of the holdings will embrace the
lower level of the Neue Nationalgalerie and - first and foremost - the exhibition spaces
of the new building.

The Kulturforum is characterised by an urban architecture of mutually complementary


solitaires in a flowing urban space. The exact placement and architectural design of
the new building needs to improve the urbanistic situation and the open spaces quality
of stay, and render them more precise.
This competition for ideas is meant to clarify how the new building for the Museum of the
20th Century and its immediate environment can be fashioned architecturally, in terms
of urban planning, and in the design of the open spaces. The competition is aimed at
gaining insights into the task formulation and framework conditions of the realisation
competition to follow. Based on the results of the competition for ideas, its organiser
will optionally define further parameters for the urban planning and the design of the
open spaces. In addition to this, 10-20 competitors are meant to be qualified for the
subsequent realisation competition as prize winners of the competition for ideas. The
competition for ideas is thus designed to provide architects who have not yet planned
or realised large museums or similar buildings with an opportunity to take part in the
realisation competition.
The German Bundestag has made 200 million euros available for this project in November 2014 (investment costs including initial equipment) and placed them under a
qualified freeze at the same time. As things stand at the moment, 110 million euros
of this are available as a gross cost ceiling for the building and outdoor facilities (cost
categories 300-500). The further realisation of the project is conditional to these funds
being released by the German Bundestag.

Further procedure

The competition organiser intends to hold a non-open realisation competition for the
Museum of the 20th Century after the competition for ideas. The performance of the
realisation competition and further procedure stages are conditional to approval of the
funding by the German Bundestag. The competition organiser will formulate further
specifications for the design of the urban space and open spaces based on the results
of the ideas competition, which will then become a basis for the realisation competition.

Design concept / central idea


Expression and character
Interior architectural and spatial quality
Compliance with the essential building and planning regulation requirements
Urbanistic placement and accentuation, distribution of cubic capacity, height development
Design concept for the open spaces, open spaces
Accommodation of the essential monument protection advice
Circulation, routing, connections to the existing and/or planned open spaces
Compliance with the essential spatial and functional requirements
(substantiation of the functional areas, spatial relationships, circulation/access
Compliance with economic specifications (area and volume parameters, cost ceiling)

Prizes
The total competition money available amounts to 260,000 euros plus VAT. 10-20 equivalent prizes of 13,000 to 26,000 euros each are planned to be awarded.

Exhibition
The competition entries will be publicly exhibited in Berlin for a minimum of two weeks.
The opening, location and duration of the exhibition will be announced in due time.

The realisation competition is intended to involve ca. 40 - 60 working groups of architects


and landscape architects as well as further disciplines, as the case may be. The prize
winners of the competition for ideas will be qualified as competitors for the realisation
competition (possibly augmented by further disciplines). A further 8 - 12 working groups
will be invited to take part in the realisation competition by the competition organiser.
The remaining competitors in the realisation competition will be selected by way of an
EU-wide call for competition (as per RPW and VOF [German contracting regulations
for freelance services]). The jury of the competition for ideas is also to serve as the jury
for the realisation competition. The competition organiser reserves the right to make
changes in the composition of the jury for the later stages of the procedure.
A VOB/A (German Construction Contract Procedures, part A) awarding procedure is
planned on the basis of the results of the realisation competition. The selection between
the procurement variants of self-construction or PPP (public-private partnership) procedure will be made by way of an economic feasibility study as per section 7 of the Federal
Budget Code BHO. The jury will support a possible PPP procedure as an architectural
assessment panel in an advisory function.
