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? View more View full description
