    Description :

    Hitler commissioned the House of Art in 1933 as a replacement for the Glass Palace in the old Botanical Gardens, which had burned down in 1931.

    The “primitive-classicist” gallery was the first monumental building of the NS regime and set a standard for later designs. The concrete structure is faced in natural stone and has a full-height piered hall along Prinzregentenstrasse.

    The interior is lit by skylights; all technical installations are hidden. Since WWII the building has been used for temporary exhibitions.
