Vanished Historical Buildings in a Modern Context

A new perspective on an old city – we mixed up different time periods and combined Berlin’s lost architectural past with its imminent future with modern sky rise buildings surrounding Alexanderplatz, creating a surreal version of Berlin that has never been and will never exist.

The juxtaposition shows how much Berlin’s cityscape has always been in flux, not just today but in the past as well.

Below renderings of the former central market halls at Alexanderplatz, impressions of the Stadtschloss and Café Helms, and the now demolished buildings at Schlossfreiheit.
