Glass Courtyard in Berlin, Germany by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The 7,000 square foot addition to the Jewish Museum in Berlin is located in the courtyard of the original building, which was built in 1735. The museum needed a multifunctional space that would provide additional room for the museum’s restaurant and extend the lobby to provide event space for lectures, concerts, and dinners. The distinctive architecture of the addition creates a space that can be used throughout the year while preserving the courtyard qualities of the baroque building.
