Description

The building, while addressing the strict Berlin typology, makes a dramatic architectural statement through a dynamic curved form.

The ceiling construction is in itself shaped as a flat ceiling, and the vertical load pull is supported by means of reinforced concrete pillars and reinforced concrete walls.

A construction was chosen allowing the use of prefab or semi prefab parts so that building under a tight schedule situation can still be carried out in time.
