Haus der Zukunft looks like a contemporary interpretation of Kino International, even down to the diamond pattern down the side.

I kind of agree, actually. For me it seems like a mixture of 20s expressionism, Kolhoffian post-modernism and socialist classicism (called 'Zuckerbäckerstil' in German)

Budapester 35 | Charlottenburg | Pro


Only 32 years after the inauguration the former 9-storey headquarter of the Berliner Volksbank is going to be demolished and replaced by a new 15-storey office high rise. Beginning the demolition in February the building is expected to be down this in years autumn. The construction will start directly after the demolition is finished.


This is the current building which sadly is going to be replaced.
It was quite a landmark in the City West ... a very iconic building.

Now that is one of those proposals that I had to read multiple times, because I thought the renders where of the building that was going to be demolished.. So they are going to replace a rather nice building with an unrecognisable office building that could have been built in the 80ies.. Sad

^ I agree. They should keep the nice postmodern rounded building, it suits the cityscape much better.

With the nondescript new design they should rather replace one of the brutalist concrete facade sins next door. The glassy tower should be slimmer and taller, set back from the street with a nice podium building and show more dignity. The Volksbank should be Berlin-patriotic enough to do better.

OMFG! The old building looks very iconic and very Berlin to me. The new one is nothing special. If they have to have more space specifically in this location tear down the old and build similar facade with more height!

There's nothing wrong with the current building. It looks much better.
