Photonics Centre, Berlin-Adlershof, 2001

The new building of the Centre of Photonics and Optical Technologies at the science location Berlin-Adlershof was constructed according to plans by the internationally acclaimed Berlin architectural office Sauerbruch Hutton between 1995 and 1998. It consists of three amoeba-like glass volumes, the separately flowing forms of which extend across the site. The different colours of their facades – a characteristic feature of the architectural office Sauerbruch Hutton – are created by means of blinds with coloured slats. The entire complex follows the principles of organic building, an architectural form little appreciated in Berlin during the period following the fall of the Wall.
