1. Mies Van der Rohe - Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin (1968). In this exhibition of the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin, the building’s place in the work of Mies van der Rohe (Aachen 1886–1969 Chicago) is illustrated. His design and building activity touched on very similar themes throughout his career. He began developing the radical idea of open space as free of supports as possible in the 1920s, one in which interior and exterior could flow into each other. His buildings are characterised by grandeur and a striving for perfection. In addition, they feature clarity and reduction with a simultaneous richness of furnishings and often visually staged construction elements.
