It will feature a permanent exhibition of modern artworks and an underground tunnel to the Neue Nationalgalerie which is undergoing a £70m renewal by David Chipperfield Architects, reports the Architects’ Journal.

Expected to form a ‘unity’ with its iconic 1968 neighbour, the new building will also feature its own ‘autonomous’ entrance and identity – according to the brief.

Between 10 and 20 finalists will receive prizes – ranging from around £10,000 to £20,000 – and invitations to compete in a second contest for the design commission.

Participation Deadline: 8 Dec 2015, 2pm local time.
