Sony Center, Potsdamerplatz Berlin

Helmut Jahn designed the Sony Center Berlin, which opened in 2000. Upon the destruction of the Berlin Wall the barren and forlorn site suddenly became desirable in the heart of the city. It was sold in 2008 to several investment fund companies.

Like a volcano of industry, the tent-like structure for this shopping center rises ambitiously into the sky. From this circular plaza styled after sacred forms, various theaters, shopping stores, and other attractions radiate outward.

The complex really comes alive at night, with colored artificial light illuminating the complex structure and spaces within. This site rises compulsively from the ashes of war with light, structure, and social community together pointing toward the heavens. Germany's new hope.
