Raum ohne Eigenschaften

The propterty at Checkpoint Charlie is particularly insteresting because it consists of two gaps between buildings across from each other, separated by the street Friedrichstraße. The area is historically highly charged, as Checkpoint Charlie was the one of the most famous border crossings in Berlin during the Berlin Wall times. At this location a socle for pedestriants is created, which hosts cafes, bars, as well as trees and benches. Information boards about the history of the neighborhood are sunk-into the ground, which makes them accessible at any time. On top of the socle there are buildings that keep a dunning distance to the firewalls and add to the configuration of the outside area.
