Speaking about the museum, conservation architect and judge, Paul Velluet, said:
“The judges have selected the Neues Museum project in Berlin from a remarkably strong field of eligible conservation projects. What is most impressive about this project is the coherence with which the works of repair and reconstruction, such as the reinstated colonnade and remarkable vaulted clay-pot ceilings, have been integrated with new work; not least in the two glazed courtyards, and inside the Staircase Hall. The result is an exemplary fusion of new and old.”
