Mies Van Der Rohe — New National Gallery

The New National Gallery is a structure in Berlin, Germany. It is a large structure made of steel with  square plans. It employs a two-way roof structure supported along the perimeter on eight columns (two on each side set in from the corners). It defines large open spaces on an elevated platform. Mies used broad flights of steps to connect the respective platforms with the ground. The structure is walled totally in glass, and measures 166 feet square, with a 26-foot height, comprising an area of 27,000 square feet. Many people regard it as Mies’ most classical work in its feeling.
