High-Tech Architecture – Pretty Nice Or Pretty Ugly?



###### Important note: Unfortunately the music mix in this clip is too loud – please be patient – we will fix this as soon as possible! ######😘
It looks like a huge machine. The International Congress Centrum Berlin – ICC for short – is one of the most striking buildings in Berlin. And one of the most controversial. Some would gladly have it torn down, and the giant building has not been used properly since 2014. In addition, it has high maintenance costs and is also contaminated with asbestos. But others see the ICC as an important landmark in the city’s history. The city of Berlin, which owns the ICC, confirms this, having made it a listed building in 2019. It is hoped that temporary art exhibitions will open up new possibilities in the building’s future, however it still remains uncertain.

  1. I say demo it and build a modern convention center that lets in lots of natural sunlight, has solar, efficient heating/cooling systems, clean modern touchless bathrooms, etc. and will host a bunch of cool conventions (cars/tuner/imports, comics/anime/cosplay/film, tattoos/oddities/goth, antiques/collectables, electronics/audiophile/computing, etc.) and is connected to mass transportation systems. This will bring tourists like myself to Germany and economic prosperity to the region.

  2. who classified this as High-Tech architecture? Pompidou Center as one of the people interviewed mentioned is really a High-Tech building. High-Tech architecture is a branch of modernism and it emphasizes on putting the structure and services exposed as a proof of collaboration between all engineering branches and the architects from conceptualization.
