The Neue Nationalgalerie (New National Gallery) at the Kulturforum is a museum for modern art in Berlin, with its main focus on the early 20th century.

The design of the building provoked a vivid debate about postmodernism and German architecture. Postmodernism design moved away from “form follows function” and used elements from classical architecture often out of context, something made possible by new building methods and materials.

The new Porsche Museum will express the company’s self-confident stance and high standards in architectural terms, while at the same time conveying the firm’s dynamism and vitality. The Porsche Museum was conceived as a gravity-defying, dynamically formed monolithic structure that seems to hover above the folded topography of the ground and the first-floor levels. It contains the exhibition area, and provides an opportunity to spatially experience the Porsche “cosmos”.

Museum für Kunsthandwerk
Architect: Richard Meier

The architecture housing the Museum Angewandte Kunst was designed by Richard Meier. By integrating the Neoclassicist Metzler family villa built in the nineteenth century, he created an ensemble consisting of the surrounding park, the villa and the new building. It re-opened in April 2013 with a restoration of the Richard Meier architecture to its original splendor.

German Architecture Museum – Deutsches Architektur Museum : DAM
German Architecture Museum
The German Architecture Museum (Deutsches Architekturmuseum) (DAM) is located on the Museumsufer in Frankfurt, Germany. Housed in an 18th-century building, the interior has been re-designed by Oswald Mathias Ungers in 1984 as a set of “elemental Platonic buildings within elemental Platonic buildings”. It houses a permanent exhibition entitled “From Ancient Huts to Skyscrapers” which displays the history of architectural development in Germany.
