Orientation Berlin

Welcome students!

Global Arch + Design Berliners moved into their studio today - the first tenants of new passive house building "Spreefeld" Complex on the Spree River.

The concrete volume has radiant floor heating, passive solar gains, and 5 meter high ceilings. It's also directly adjacent the project site, so students can conduct site research and get to know the neighborhood.

The local Spreefeld neighborhood fosters community, art, and culture on the public waterfront venues.

Welcoming tour of Berlin invluded back to back Potsdamer Platz buildings by Piano, Rogers and Jahn, the Jewish Memorial by Eisenman, and the Reichstag Dome by Foster. Still a lot to see and do.
