Discussion Neue Staatsgalerie Commentary

"The main entrance to the museum is marked by a tall, blue and red painted, centrally placed steel pavilion. It is approached to front right by a staircase and to the left by a ramp dominated by oversized coloured hand-rails. A car park is situated below the main reception area which is itself dominated by a bright green rubber floor, and this reflects in all the surrounding glazed surfaces. Glimpsed through small windows in this area, the central, scalped stone-faced rotunda can be seen. In it classical references abound. On the first floor lie the 15 top-lit and rather traditional rooms that serve as the galleries and contain some splendid examples of German and foreign art."

— Dennis Sharp. Twentieth Century Architecture: a Visual History. p385.
