Jewish Museum Berlin's expansion
May 15, 2009
The Jewish Museum Berlin’s long desire to expand will now become a reality.  The Museum has been granted its much-needed expansion into the area on the opposite side of the road which currently houses Berlin’s Central Flower Market and the project was entrusted to Studio Daniel Libeskind. The space provided by the expansion into the market hall will satisfy the Museum’s urgent need for additional room for educational programs, the archives, the library, and research facilities.  
André Schmitz, State Secretary for Cultural Affairs in Berlin, has approved the project, ensuring that the state of Berlin will hand over the use and management of the entire hall to the Jewish Museum Berlin. The expansion has become necessary due to the growth of the education and research areas at the Jewish Museum Berlin. The purpose of the new building is to bring the education department, the archive, and the library under one roof, thus creating a synergy between scientific research and educational work. Direct access to information, more room for an ideas exchange, transfer of knowledge, and encounters – the new location will ensure all these and more. The objective is to establish, in Berlin, one of the most important research and education centers on the history and culture of German-speaking Jewry.  
The existing building designed by architect Bruno Grimmek between 1962 and 1965 will not be demolished, but merely modified to suit the requirements of the Jewish Museum Berlin. Construction work can begin in 2010 when the approximately 6,000 m² hall will be vacated by the Berlin Central Market, which will move to the Beusselstrasse.
