In 1962 the Berlin Senate commissioned Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (1886 - 1969) to build a museum in the city to house 20th-century art. The Neue Nationalgalerie (New National Gallery), constructed 1965-68, was the only building erected by the architect in Germany during the post-war period. The museum is a landmark of modern architecture and is listed as a protected monument by the State of Berlin.
