Der Leipziger Platz: Leipziger Platz Carre, Lennedreieck

Abstract [en]

An architectural casualty of World War II and the division of Berlin into East and West, Leipziger Platz is finally resurfacing from the urban wilderness into a reconstructed state. The octagonal form that has historically characterized the site (and that gave it its original name of Achteck) will reemerge, under the auspice of Hilmer & Sattler's master proposal for the city of Berlin. Internationally renowned architects have designed an ensemble of town houses, consciously incorporating Berlin's construction traditions and developing them along European urban models. Der Leipziger Platz offers a thorough overview of the square's history, a reexamination of its development and a description of future developments. Photographs, outlines, computer simulations, photos of models and ground plans give a vivid depiction of the future appearance of a site about to regain its status as one of Berlin's most elegant addresses.Show more Show less
