In 1965, a competition was held for the construction of the Gemäldegalerie, Skulpturenabteilung, Kunstgewerbemuseum, Kupferstichkabinett and Kunstbibliothek on the southern edge of Tiergarten. The competition ended without a first prize being awarded. The design by architectural team Redlich/Steinweg was awarded second prize. Their expansive concept follows the basic open urban planning of Scharoun and tries to expand the broad landscape of the ensemble. In 1966, architect Rolf Gutbrod was commissioned to rework his contribution, but by 1985 only the Kunstgewerbemuseum was completed. Construction of today’s Gemäldegalerie was begun in 1986 based on plans by the firm Hilmer and Sattler.
