Designs released for tallest tower in Berlin

Barkow Leibinger has been announced as the winning firm in a competition to design a commercial tower in Berlin. The 175m-high tower will be the tallest building in Berlin when it completes and will comprise of a conference centre, office facilities and a hotel in a series of volumes of varying size.

Composed in metal and glass with a contemporary design, the scheme will provide a new focal point at the boundary between the city's industrial and residential periphery and the historical neighbourhoods of Neukolln.

This cascading family of forms, from high to low-scaled, radiates to form two strong orientations: to the street side (Sonnenallee) and to the water side (Ship Canal). Further details of the winning concept can be found here.
