space age is over

at least in hansaviertel, berlin. the ex-consistory of the protestant church of berlin is going to be demolished.  the quite interesting building from the late 60s  with the aluminum skin and appropriately rounded windows will not be renovated but replaced by some nice flats in a probably nice standard housing.

the consistory was designed by georg heinrichs and hans christian müller . it seems to be the only building in the hansaviertel that was build for administrative purposes at that time. due to it’s looks it is considered as belonging to “space age architecture” and though i don’t know anything about this, i really do like the term. and i like the building. and it’s here.
