Palast der Republik – revisited
The video is up on youtube!
A project Johan, Katja and me did on this amazing building in Berlin, the former GDR governmental building Palast der Republik. Once a great building working for the public, nowadays you’ll only find a ruin that costs the government a fortune to maintain and now demolish it.
We intensively researched on the treatment of nowadays governments with their politically flawed heritage.
Picturethat: The building was open to the public from 8 a.m. to midnight, containing a discoteque, a bowling range, several bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as stages for concerts etc.
Can you imagine going for bowling into the White house?
What a waste of perfectly working architecture and a great basis for future developments.
Not worth wasting another thought, it is over now…
Enjoy this 3d studio video we made to show the building’s past, present and crazy future
