The restoration of the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin will cost an estimated €101m, Hermann Parzinger, the director of the Prussian Cultrural Heritage Foundation, announced yesterday, January 21. This masterpiece by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, which opened in 1968, was closed in early January. Access to displays in the basement of the temple-like structure has already been closed since December 21. Construction of the exterior will not be visible initially, as the five-year makeover will start inside the building.

David Chipperfield Architects has been entrusted with the refurbishment project, having found international acclaim for its work on rebuilding the Neues Museum on Museum Island in Berlin.
