Berlin 2016 - Potsdarmer Platz

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Potsdamer Platz is one of the major public squares in Berlin. It is also one of the busiest intersections in the City. This location has a long and colourful history – however it was completely levelled during the 2nd World War and as it ended up on the Eastern side of the Wall – it was left desolate until the reunification. After that it became one of the most intensely developed areas in Berlin – with new highrise offices and swanky commercial complexes.In fact it was conceived as a project to symbolically link East and West Berlin together – as Potsdamer Platz happens to be at the former border between the East and West.

The redevelopment masterplan was by German firm Hilmer & Sattler who beat some architectural heavy weights to win the competition. After the competition the area was divided into 4 parts – each sold to a seperate developer. The largest of the 4 parts went to Daimler who engaged renown Italian Architect Renzo Piano to design a number of the key buildings.

Richard Rogers also designed a number of the buildings in the Daimler quarter – and these are some of the most striking Modernist architecture in the whole area.
