Description

The James Simon Gallery, the new entrance building between the Kupfergraben and the Neues Museum, marks the architectural conclusion of the Museuminsel ensemble in Berlin after 180 years. Together with the Archaeological Promenade, it forms the centrepiece of the master plan developed in 1999, which has since served as the starting point for all further planning on Museumsinsel.

This book, published by David Chipperfield Architects on the occasion of the opening, is dedicated to the building and its cultural contexts. Photographs by Thomas Struth present the completed building, both within its urban context as well as in intimate close-ups. Texts by prominent architects, historians and sociologists complement the artistic photographic documentation.
