The Israeli architect Zvi Hecker who has been living and working in Berlin since 1991 – known for the Heinz-Galinski-Grundschule in Berlin – has made a visual statement for the reunification of Germany with his design for the square between the Brandenburg Gate and Tiergarten. This design makes this inhospitable location, which at the moment is primarily used for large scale events, accessible to a wide public from Berliners to visitors from all over the world. With the presentation of his original drawings, sketches and models the exhibition intends to instigate a constructive debate about the future of this central square.
