From the architect. Guillermo Hevia Garcia took this nice pictures of the Neue National Gallery in Berlin, by Mies van der Rohe.

This building is from 1968, and it´s a jump from the traditional museum idea of a closed building with exhibition rooms, into an open-plan flexible space.

The building is 64.8m long, with only 2 steel columns on each side, which free the corners giving the building a lightweight look.

A very "Mies" building, with a clear and radical idea put on a very minimal, yet detailed structure.

This is the first non-contemporary building we have published so far on ArchDaily. Would you like to see more articles like this?

Classical language can't be devoid of style. The history of the orders are imbedded in style as well as proportion. Even Corbusier spoke of classical proportions- however, to say Mies used classical language isn't really accurate.

It would definately be a good idea!! although cautiously since the good all classics are classics only in a formal sense and more fossils of a fossil age, and as such have more of a historic value than practical one. So it would be nice to see some more of the old rights and wrongs.

Jan · June 06, 2009

It would be great to see some post about the Crown Hall of the IIT in Chicago.
Thats one of Mies' masterpieces in my eyes, too!

lc · June 04, 2009

yes more classic buildings !

Chiaro Scuro · June 04, 2009

In school...and am all ready bombarded with Mies and his contemporaries. I love this stuff, but I usually come to this site to see new design on a daily basis. Once in a while is good, but if anyone wants to see Mies and his peers, every arch history book will have them, as well as almost any publication on modern arch. Also, if you are going to show a work from Mies, please do not leave out details. They're pretty damn awesome.

FLW · June 03, 2009

simplicity is genius

Opium · April 05, 2009

WE want the classics....bring some more...and more detail...mies,corbusier,aalto,niemeyer...time for some real architecture.

Nafoukana koza · December 18, 2008

I am looking for some floorplans of this building, would you advise me a website to explore? Thx, very much for helping me, a prospective architectess :o)

Tomás · May 16, 2010 01:27 PM

Hey Nafoukana! I have some floorplans of this building in pdf version because I had to draw and "analyze" it during my first year of architecture (4 years ago). If you want, I could send you that pdf, I think I had the main floorplan and the basement's too, together with some sections (these ones I dont know if they're as reliable).

If you want something, contact me at tomasasenjo@hotmail.com

Jim · December 03, 2008

The best buidlings of 20th century modernism will always have something to say, and appear fresh. I agree with the comment that the site should focus mainly on the contemporary, but inclusions like this help to give some perspective.

Might send a few of my own soon!

Martin · October 11, 2008

I'm a new user of arch daily, I think the website is awesome but what I noticed after some reading was the lack of Modernist architecture in the page. This article is excellent so keep up the excellent work and please publish more modernist work.

laurent · July 18, 2008

Mies didn't make modernism after 1928, he used a classical language with steel and some concrete....

ivan · July 15, 2008

this building is massive and reminds me of the passport office building in santiago, chile (for no apparent reason). i love both. wish i had pics of the latter.

MauroM · July 15, 2008

Yeah!...we are still proud of our father (grandfather??)

Des · July 15, 2008

What Soda said.
Keep up the excellent work.

J · July 15, 2008

YES! More classics please! It will make this site even more better than it already is.

Shane · July 14, 2008

As long as a building is posted with great thought, like this post, then that would be excellent. I've seen this building several times in pictures, but the way this whole blog is done around it makes it much more intriguing.

soda · July 14, 2008

I'm all for seeing Modernist classics or any worthwhile architecture as part of the website. I would like the site to maintain is primarily contemporary focus of work, however.

Caroline · July 14, 2008

Modernist buildings should definately be on the website. Actually any building of architectural merit, regardless of style or age, is worth including in order to build a comprehensive data base.

Neil · July 14, 2008

I'd definitely like to see more posts like this one. These modernist buildings have inspired many or most of the contemporary ones features here, so it makes sense to include them.
