The Jewish Museum Berlin constructed a one floor 25,000 square foot academy on the site of the Blumengrossmarkt in the existing hall. It offers public programs together with a library, additional office, storage and support spaces for the Museum.
The Academy is 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 Extension building on the other side of Linden Street. The shape and design of the cube forms an aesthetic connection to the JMB’s Garden of Exile as well as the Glass Court.
The project has been realized by Architekt Daniel Libeskind AG (ADL) with Studio Daniel Libeskind (SDL).
