Location: Potsdamer Platz,10785 Berlin
The design of the Potsdamer Platz today links the city of Berlin with the image of Germany as a big economic player on the international scene.
The space, destroyed in 1943 and situated on what was formerly no-man’s-land along the Berlin Wall, was rebuilt to symbolize this strength. Discover how city planners attempted to develop a lively, post-modern monument to economic wealth and progress.
The re-development of this space was also an attempt at the revival of this square’s former glory of the 1920s and 1930s when this was one of the busiest hubs in Europe.
