In 2012 Haus der Kunst will mark the 75th anniversary of its public inauguration in the summer of 1937. It will do so with an exhibition that will present an extensive reflection on and overview of the legacy of Haus der Kunst drawn directly from documents, objects, photographs, paintings and sculptures both from its historical archive and from museum collections in Germany, Europe and the United States: 75/20 (June 10, 2012–January 2013).The precursor of the architecture of Haus der Kunst was the Glass Palace, built in 1853/54 by August von Voit for the First General German Industry Exhibition. The Glass Palace was a large, open modern structure constructed in glass and iron.
