All glass for the new National Gallery renovation project is produced by only one Chinese company- Tianjin NorthGlass.

A while ago, there was an online article on the renovation of the New National Gallery created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, in which mentioned that “owners have found only one standard supplier in the world - one supplier from china and asked: which chinese company?”

How are you going to make us to occupy the C position?

The new National Gallery (German: Neue Nationalgalerie), located in the cultural square in the heart of Berlin, near Potsdam Square, was built in 1965 and completed in three years. It is the last representative work completed in the legendary life of architect Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe.

After its use of nearly 50 years, the new National Gallery was renovated in 2015 by David Chipperfield Architects, and whose minimalist design style is famous all over the world. The new project is expected to be completed in April 2021 and to be opened in August of the same year.

The gallery is a two-story square building, with a clear posture at a glance. The upper layer is a large glass courtyard covering an area of 2600 square meters. The huge square flat roof is supported by eight cross-shaped columns, which are mainly used for special exhibitions. The lower layer can accommodate permanent collections and provide special exhibition and learning platforms for viewers and schools. In addition to exhibition space, museum buildings include libraries, shops and cafes.

The renovation project of the new National Gallery includes the whole architectural appearance and structure, and also meets the requirements of modern museum operation and tourist service. Official presented that in order to ensure the openness and unity of the curtain wall, all glass is produced by only one Chinese company- Tianjin NorthGlass.

And its most characteristic is the super-large structural glass of the glass curtain wall in the upper hall, with a width of more than 3.5 meters. Such a wide toughened laminated glass is extremely rare in European architectural applications and super glass is more like a bridge between space and light.

Joachim Jagger, director of the New National Gallery, said “After years of renovation, the sun-filled glass halls and basement spaces are shining, and the new glass, the perfect painting of the steel roof and the freshness of the building as a whole are particularly impressive.”

The building, from the whole of the huge glass roof to the nuances, seems to be striving for excellence for the “purity” of the building, it has clear and rational style with a minimalist but detailed structure. NorthGlass has the same way to make very simple glass with complex to subtle craft. NorthGlass not only witnessed the non contemporary modernist architectural style, but also witnessed the outstanding vision of architects.

The C position is destined for NorthGlass.
