The overhaul and extension of the “Pergamonmuseum (PMU)” is the final step in the completion of the Berlin museum island as a globally unique ensemble. As a daylight museum, the PMU has an exceptional position in this context. The renovation occurs warily under full retention of the concept of Wiegand; according to strict historic preservation requirements and to high conservation demands in some areas. Especially in these sections, the flexible illumination of both, permanent and temporary exhibitions by adaptable spotlights is of particular importance. The large-scale application of LEDs is currently being examined intensively.
