Item description for Der Leipziger Platz: Urban Architecture for a New Berlin by Tanja Schult...
An architectural casualty of World War II and the division of Berlin into East and West, Leipziger Platz is finally resurfacing from the urban wilderness into a reconstructed state. The external form of an octagon that has historically characterized the site, and that gave it its original name, Achteck, will reemerge in the urban master plan put forward by Hilmer & Sattler for the city of Berlin. Internationally renowned architects have designed an ensemble of town houses consciously incorporating Berlin's construction traditions and striving to develop them following European urban models. Der Leipziger Platz offers an exhaustive overview of the square's history, a reexamination of its development, and a description of future developments. Photographs, outlines, computer simulations, photos of models, and ground plans give a graphic illustration of the future appearance of a site well on the way to regaining its status as one of the most elegant addresses in Berlin.
