Contemporary brick buildings

Premium-tour example – material

Everywhere in Berlin‘s countryside you come across old clay pits and brickworks. Without them,the rapid growth of the capital during its founding period would have been impossible. In the majority of houses, the bricks have disappeared behind plaster, but there are some representative brick buildings in Berlin – just think of the Red City Hall.
In recent years, the material has experienced a renaissance and is increasingly being used in contemporary projects such as David Chipperfield‘s New Museum or the planned „House of One“. The material decisively shapes the look and feel of a building – this guided tour focuses on it.
