Forum Museumsinsel - Mixed Quarter

A very nice project is U/C next to the world famous Museum Island of Berlin:

Forum Museumsinsel, a mixed-use urban quarter for culture, living, office and shopping/restaurants. It's in between the lively Oranienburger Strasse and the river Spree, thus one of the prime locations in Berlin.

300 million Euros are invested here.

Die Webseite hält auch noch einiges an Infos und Bildmaterial bereit:

Insgesamt verspricht das doch ein sehr ansprechendes und urbanes Quartier zu werden.

Perhaps this concept will be revived? Would be fantastic.
Please build this somewhere! Anywhere!!! Newark or New York City would be preferable. The world needs more historical revivalist architecture that is tastefully done!

You will be happy to learn they did build something very similar in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Actually, they did so twice, once in the artsy borough of Palermo, and once on the posh waterfront in Puerto Madero.

Here's a photo: http://imageshack.us/a/img100/474/panochateau.jpg

it's called Chateau Tower of Puerto Madero.

How do you guys feel about this article?

It seems to be attacking the very neo-traditionalist "New Berlin Style" that these recent posts have been praising.

Architectural revivalism is always a bad thing. It puts people focus on the past, when architecture should be always about out-doing and overwhelming the past with something better, newer and more innovative.

^ Which building? There are several ones depicted.


Anyway - the quoted article is polemic modernist bullcrap and can't be taken any serious.

Let's get back to actual projects.

"The Factory" Berlin - Startup hub

Nice project started by several Berlin startups, moving into a single lively startup center:

The Factory Berlin.

It's an old brewery converted into flexible offices for young companies.
It'll be occupied by Soundcloud, the Mozilla Foundation, Toast, Views, Foursektor, Urge IO, Siliconallee and several others.

Visualizations:







Article:
The startup scene in Berlin is tightly-knit in terms of contact and networking – but geographically it’s all over the shop, from Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg to Kreuzberg and Charlottenburg. Now, however, the German capital is finally getting a genuine tech epicentre in the form of The Factory, a massive new development alongside where the Berlin Wall once ran its menacing course.

Officially unveiled today, The Factory is being developed by JMES Investments, a Berlin-based angel and seed investor, in partnership with s+p Real Estate. And it’s already making a splash – SoundCloud has signed on the dotted line to become the big-name launch tenant when the campus opens later this year.

But The Factory is not just a glorified office block. It is designed to house the entire spectrum of startup-related businesses, from the SoundClouds of this world to budding new business, all sitting side by side with investors and mentors.

And yet it’s not simply an accelerator or an incubator, as Simon Schaefer from JMES – who invested in Silicon Allee last year – said: “We are creating a campus where startups can learn from each other and use collective knowledge to overcome early stage hurdles… We will have mentors, investors and new companies there together. It will be a synergetic ecosystem for new companies, with 3,000 square metres reserved just for them.”

The building on Rheinsberger Strasse, close to Brunnenstrasse, is being completely renovated and transformed, including the addition of two new storeys. The structure – previously the Oswald Brauerei – is adjacent to a former district boundary which marked the border between East and West Berlin, and a Wall memorial is located nearby.

There are also rumours that nearby buildings will be added to the campus, bringing the total available floor space up to around 10,000 square metres.

Initiated by a group of established German founders, who together will decide which companies to allow in, The Factory will be more than just a place to work. Simon explained how, just as large corporations like Microsoft and Google do for their employees, startups will get the chance to maintain a positive work/life balance, with the site including a restaurant, deli, fitness centre and sauna, basketball court, art gallery and extensive conference and roof terrace space.

Simon added: “You will hear a lot about this space during the summer, as we will make sure to involve the startup scene to the highest degree. This concept will not be formed by investors, but rather the scene itself.”

Alexander Grosse, VP of engineering for SoundCloud, said: “We believe The Factory will provide us with an environment that reflects the culture and working ethic of SoundCloud; one that fosters collaboration, innovation, creativity and development. We’re excited to share this new campus with like-minded startups at varying stages of growth.”

As the rush starts to secure space in The Factory, Berlin’s tech scene will be eagerly anticipating the arrival of a definitive startup epicentre.

Sorry, I quoted the wrong post and therefore the wrong photo.

I meant this one from Buenos Aires, Argentina!

I didn't get a chance to look at that article from Der Speigel.

It looks a bit boring from the rendering...

^ Seems like the areas for exclusive buildings become more rare - exceptionally rare. Chapeau, Berlin!
