David Chipperfield: Sticks and Stones

The British architect and artist Sir David Chipperfield has filled the open glass hall of the Neue Nationalgalerie with144 large tree trunks, transforming it into a forest-like space for three months.

Chipperfield was inspired by the museum's construction between 1965 and 1968 after the designs of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

His installation engages with the museum's original architectural features while also drawing attention to its upcoming renovation by David Chipperfield Architects in 2015.
