Reconstruction of and exhibition design for a permanent children's museum targeting 5- to 12-year-olds conceived to provide this age group and their accompanying adults with a special visitor experience at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
The Jewish Museum Berlin Foundation wishes to use the currently unutilised space within the former wholesale flower market hall (the Eric F. Ross Building) to create the children's museum. This space is located in the hall between the existing spaces and offices comprising the Academy of the Jewish Museum developed by Daniel Libeskind and the administrative offices which are currently being refurbished to the west. A budget of 3 440 000 EUR (KG 300 — 600 gross without artwork) is available for the building work with a further 2 110 000 EUR (gross) to finance the creation of the exhibition. Building work should be completed by mid 2018 with the opening of the exhibition scheduled for 2019.
The client intends to obtain the best solution for the exhibition design and its architectural realisation in the Eric F. Ross Building by running a closed anonymous two-stage interdisciplinary design competition. Following the competition, the Client plans to enter into contract negotiations with all the prize winners.
