Neues Museum - the floors

Built in 1849 and bombed in WW2, the Neues Museum lay derelict until David Chipperfield Architects revived it, leaving some of the old decoration; it reopened in 2009.

Wow. The combination of antiquity and modernity works for me.

My photos are hasty; we visited late-afternoon of our final day in Berlin. Much better photos are here and here - as well as a lot of written information.

I would have liked to spend longer photographing feet-on-floors - wonderful tiling!
