Media City

Babelsberg, Germany

Description

Studio Libeskind has been recommended to design a new mixed-use office park that will serve as an iconic gateway for Germany’s filmmaking headquarters.  The design concept is focused on creating human-scaled buildings that encourage community and flexible office and public spaces throughout the site.  A 66 meter high circular office tower will anchor four low-rise buildings with surrounding open space.

 

“The design of the five buildings is inspired by the forms associated with filmmaking: stacked 70 millimeter film reels; camera apertures; and lenses.  The building ensemble is intended to further secure the development of Babelsberg as a world-renowned film and media locations,” – Daniel Libeskind
