The futuristic Galeriehaus on Museum Island is to become a cultural education centre for young people. It was designed by the British star architect David Chipperfield, who also built the new entrance building to the Museum Island, the James Simon Gallery. There had been a long back and forth around the approximately 2000 square metre house. After announcements and withdrawals, the family finally decided to gift the house to the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation.
