MisterFreeman87, yes Bode Museum in Berlin is certainly a commanding and grand edifice! I was in Berlin in 1995 but did not go in to this building, I wish I had! Although I did go to the Pergamonmuseum (sp?).

When it comes to fine art and antiquities, is it better to have a plain building that contrasts the masterpieces on display, or is it better to have an ornate building that helps the artwork to create a full sensory experience? It seems to me that an ornate building might distract from the artworks, but at the same time, a plain building is a plain building, and we should build better things for our cultural treasures than bunkers that look like middle schools, prisons, or both.
