The Berlinische Galerie has a copious architecture collection. In keeping with its principles, Berlin’s public museum of modern art, photography and architecture likes to present and reflect architectural interventions in the context of fine art.

About

Architect Arno Brandlhuber (* 1964) straddles boundaries. His interdisciplinary approach, his commitment to new approaches, his willingness to provoke and experiment are almost unique. Since 2003 he has held the Chair in Architecture and Urban Studies in Nuremberg, and he is no friend of either the policy or historicising architecture or the costly new buildings that have become established practice in Berlin, in particular in recent years. He puts his architectural resources to good use in constructing unusual, inexpensive buildings, for example in ruins, which does not exactly pander to popular taste. Brandlhuber thus literally occupies gaps in the system to implement his ideas of architecture and urban policy. He refuses to define a specific aesthetic.

Brandlhuber has been given “carte blanche” for the first big exhibition hall in the Berlinische Galerie. In this space 40 metres long and 10 metres high Brandlhuber, together with Thomas Mayfried and Florian Hertweck, will produce an architecture that critically reflects the “museum” as an institution, its exhibition conventions and constraints.
