Architecture College Trip to Berlin

Berlin, the German capital, remains alive in the 21st-century landscape as the city that has seen and borne it all. Competing political ideologies manifested themselves in the urban landscape of the city whilst radical design movements such as Bauhaus and Modernism played an important role in shaping this landscape. The construction of the Berlin Wall brought about a physical divide to the city, whose aftermath is evident till date in the varying physical attributions of East and West Berlin.

In the revolutionary 1920s, the avant-garde in architecture, along with other art movements, were experimented with by prominent architects like Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius, as well as his Modernist contemporaries Alvar Aalto, Mies van der Rohe and Le Corbusier. The second phase of an architectural revolution in Berlin only came about after the fall of the Berlin Wall, wherein post-modernist architects such as Frank Gehry, Rem Koolhaas, Richard Rogers and Aldo Rossi created contemporary masterpieces that presented themselves as catalysts for Berlin’s entry into the 21st Century.

Alte Nationalgalerie

The Alte Nationalgalerie is home to Romantic and Impressionist masterpieces, as well as a world-class collection of works by Adolph Menzel.

Jewish Museum

The museum building designed by Daniel Libeskind has given Jewish history in Germany a new and challenging architectural presence. The history of the buildings that have housed Jewish institutions or that have been inhabited by Jews is closely linked to the general development of human settlements, and it can be traced by examining Jewish community buildings, cultural facilities, commercial architecture and private homes. Touching upon a range of topics, including the evolution of Jewish architecture, the restrictions it was subjected to, and its ultimate destruction, the "Architectural Observations" tour of the museum building provides telling insights into the varied history of Jewish life.
