Hermann Henselmann, Kerk-Oliver Dahm
location Berlin
function congress centre
contributed by christian_02

In 1961-1964, the Haus des Lehrers ('House of Teachers') was built on Alexanderplatz, together with the accompanying Kongresshalle ('Congress Hall'). Hermann Henselmann chose a box form for the 12-storey building, which was a typical solution for post-war, modern skyscraper architecture. Influenced by contemporary Mexican murals, the building was given a monumental, multicoloured frieze by Walter Womacka. The Congress Hall (now known as the bcc / Berliner Congress Center) is striking for its transparency, clear forms and many interesting architectural details. The shiny aluminium dome can be seen from far away. A wide view of the cityscape opens out from the foyer. The combination of the bcc and the neighbouring House of Teachers forms a tense architectural ensemble on Alexanderplatz. Berlin-based architect Kerk-Oliver Dahm has refurbished and modernized the building in 2004 (text from project's website).
