The Jewish Museum Berlin plans to construct an academy on the site of the Blumengrossmarkt by using the existing hall. It will offer public programs together with additional office, storage and support spaces for the Museum. Maintaining the hall structure, a cultural use is being established with the option of future expansion.

At the same time, the academy project represents a first and decisive step in enhancing the area between Friedrich, Markgrafen, Linden and Bessel Streets and the E.T.A. Hoffmann Passage. The urban master plan proposes additional new buildings creating a dense but at the same time permeable urban neighborhood with the former Blumengrossmarkt at its center.

A sequence of spaces and a pedestrian connection that diagonally connects Linden Street to Bessel Street through the block is being created. The E.T.A. Hoffmann passage is framed by a new building on its Northern side. Between Linden Street and the Academy a new urban space opens up, which is connected to the important urban axis of Friedrich Street.

The Academy is being integrated into the ensemble of historical Kollegienhaus and the JMB Extension. A tilted cube penetrates the outer wall of the hall creating a counterpart to the JMB main entrance and the head of the Extension building on the other side of Linden Street. The shape of the cube varies a common theme that can be found in the Garden of Exile as well as in the Glass Court.
