The new Alexanderplatz

One City two Centres

25 years ago, great plans were made for Alexanderplatz. Thirteen high-rises were to mark the historic centre of Berlin according to Hans Kollhoff‘s master plan and turn Alexanderplatz into a worthy metropolitan square – the plans were on hold for a long time, but now things are getting underway; three new high-rises are already under construction.
But buildings of the formerly unloved GDR modernism are also experiencing a new appreciation. The multi-layered House of Statistics, saved by committed citizens, and the Pressehaus with its rotating advertising drum and large-scale artwork are being restored. The tour introduces the history of the square, the famous train station and the current above-ground developments of architecture and urban development at Alexanderplatz.
