It is part of a complex of cultural buildings in Berlin called Kulturforum. Presents a language familiar to the Berlin Philharmonic, also Schauroun work, as opposed to international style exhibited by the Neue Nationalgalerie of Mies van der Rohe. The three buildings comprising the Kulturforum.
It is one of the organs of the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. It was created in 1967 to house some of the books from the Staatsbibliothek who had moved to Berlin during the war to prevent the bombing, and by chance ended up in one of the Western occupation zones after the war.
