Following the budgeting of 62 million euros in March 2017 for the reconstruction of Schinkel’s Bauakademie in Berlin, German architects are in the need of re-formulating and reflecting over the historical original building and its meaning today.
How and how much will we keep the memory of Schinkel’s Bauakademie? How do we want this place to behave in its contemporary urban landscape? How, or do we, want to update the functional program of the building for the future? Is it possible to find a Schinkelian sense and expression of designing buildings today?
