Jewish Museum Berlin in Germany by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The Jewish Museum Berlin, which opened to the public in 2001, exhibits the social, political and cultural history of the Jews in Germany from the 4th century to the present. The museum explicitly presents and integrates, for the first time in postwar Germany, the repercussions of the Holocaust. The new extension is housed on the site of the original Prussian Court of Justice building which was completed in 1735 and renovated in the 1960s to become a museum for the city of Berlin.

Glass Courtyard in Berlin, Germany by Studio Daniel Libeskind

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

Article source: Studio Daniel Libeskind

The 7,000 square foot addition to the Jewish Museum in Berlin is located in the courtyard of the original building, which was built in 1735. The museum needed a multifunctional space that would provide additional room for the museum’s restaurant and extend the lobby to provide event space for lectures, concerts, and dinners. The distinctive architecture of the addition creates a space that can be used throughout the year while preserving the courtyard qualities of the baroque building.

Flussbad in Berlin, Germany by realities:united

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Article source: realities:united

The goal of the Flussbad project is the permanent transformation of a 1.5-km stretch of river in Berlin’s historic center that has gone unused for more than 100 years.

The lower section of the course of the river, currently channeled as a canal, will be made into a space accessible to the public via two broad shoreline stairways at the Lustgarten and the Schlossplatz. The design alterations in this sensitive city-planning area, part of which belongs to the “Museum Island”, a UNESCO world cultural heritage site, are restricted to a minimum.

House L in Berlin, Germany by pott architects

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

Article source: pott architects

A house that grows out of the landscape 

Life in the countryside, in the midst of nature, has always had a magical, inspiring quality. To create a peaceful home in natural surroundings as a balance to the hectic world of work in the city is a lifestyle ambition which many people find especially appealing. These thoughts were the starting-point for the discussion with a family of four, who had chosen an extensive wooded site on a slope for the realisation of their plan to build themselves a home of distinctive character. The objective was a house designed sensitively enough to harmonise with its natural surroundings, leaving intact the mature trees and the whole forest-like atmosphere of the setting. The building was to feel wide open to the changing natural seasons and the sunlight, drawing them close into the family’s everyday home life. It was to be an ecologically responsible building, capable of functioning sustainably with minimum demand on resources.

There are approximately 49,000 oil silos in over 660 oil refineries worldwide! As the human population increases at an exponential rate, oil discovery decreases at an exponential rate. Soon all existing oil silos will be abandoned as fuel storage containers.

Corporate headquarters of Berlinwasser Holding AG in Germany by LANGHOF®

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Article source: LANGHOF®

The corporate headquarters of Berlinwasser Holding AG are located in one of the oldest urban quarters of Berlin, the area surrounding the Molkenmarkt plaza. The exceptional building speaks a language all its own, its architecture reflecting the forms prevalent in expressionism and cubism. In addition, images of architecture as found in science fiction and fantasy novels, modern aesthetic principles as established by computer graphics, and the formal language of product design have all contributed to a building that could also be termed an event.

Velodrome and Olympic Swimming Pool in Berlin, Germany by Dominique Perrault Architecture

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Article source: DPA

This project is bound up with the reunification of the two Germany. It was related to the wish of a city, Berlin, then about to become the capital, to be nominated for the Olympic Games in the year 2000. From the first, there was a conjunction of the political ambitions of the Berlin Senate, an extremely strong desire for the redeployment and linking together of the two parts of the city, and a unifying project, the Olympic project, that enabled the planners to develop not only the setting up of a certain number of sporting facilities, but also a certain number of networks to serve these sporting facilities.

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Article source: KSV Architekten

The Humboldt Box will accompany the building of the Humboldt Forum/Stadtschloss Berlin as an information and exhibition structure. As a temporary building, it will be dismantled with the completion of the Humboldt Forum after a predicted lifetime eight years. Until then, later users of the Humboldt Forum – among them the National Museums in Berlin, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation as well as the Central and Regional Library Berlin – will be using the structure to provide a glimpse into their various collections. The Association for the Rebuilding of the Berliner Stadtschloss will be informing visitors about the history of the Berlin Palace, the reconstruction of the palace façade, and the historical courtyard.
