David Chipperfield - Sticks and Stones at Neue Nationalgalerie

"I’m not a big fan of endless space, or the museum as a sort of corridor. I don’t think that’s conducive to looking at things, or even being in a building. To me, too much of life is about moving; I think architecture can actually be used to help you enjoy where you are." Taking this quote from an interview with David Chipperfield in The Travel Almanac no.7 into consideration, the architect's current exhibition project at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin becomes an even more engaging base for the discussion of confinement of space. Using 144 barked spruce tree trunks, he transforms the open glass hall of the iconic Mies van der Rohe designed museum into a densely filled space of columns while creating a wonderfully playful interaction between the original structure and his temporary installation. As this project also serves as a prologue for the upcoming renovation of the institution by David Chipperfield Architects, this is the last chance to experience this extraordinary exhibition space for several years.  PK
