European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture: Neues Museum, Berlin
April 17, 2011

European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture Mies van der Rohe Award Neues Museum David ChipperfieldThe Neues Museum in Berlin is the winner of the 2011 European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award, the European Commission and the Mies van der Rohe Foundation announced. The building is a reconstruction, blending old and new, by UK architect Sir David Chipperfield. The 'Emerging Architect Special Mention' award goes to Ramon Bosch and Bet Capdeferro for the Collage House in Girona, Spain.
The award ceremony will take place on 20 June at the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion in Barcelona.
The original Neues Museum, designed by Friedrich August Stüler, was built in the mid‐19th century. The building was severely damaged in the Second World War and reconstruction began in 2003, with the aim of restoring the site to its former glory. David Chipperfield, who worked on the project in collaboration with fellow British architect Julian Harrap, adopted a dynamic approach in his restoration. Rather than attempting to conceal the difference between the old and new elements, the past and present are beautifully combined to create an unforgettable building with multiple layers.
