designboom article


danish architecture firm dorte mandrup has won an international competition to build a new museum in berlin,
dedicated to those who fled in exile during the second world war.
symbolically located by the ruins of the anhalter bahnhof railway station,
the ‘exilmuseum’ will tell the stories of those who were forced out of the country during the nazi regime,
while simultaneously considering the present day where millions of people are displaced from their homes.
the winning competition entry was chosen ahead of other proposals from SANAA, diller scofidio + renfro,
and francis kéré, among others.

Seanrhine has a point. Most projects are hard to beat for boredom. Europacity, Mediaspree, the Friedrichshain abattoir site, Leipziger Platz, Tacheles...all certainly high-quality buildings, but the special charm or a certain aesthetic appeal is hard to discern. I have only seen such a lack of emotion in Zurich before.

I wonder if there has been any new (as in since 2015) discussions on replacing the communist TV tower by a new, higher and more imposing observation tower at its current location.
