Lent by MVRDV

This housing scheme was conceived as a vertical block marking the void left by the Berlin Wall along the east-west border in the formerly divided city. Empty spaces were cut out of the building to accommodate public and community functions. The three-dimensional puzzle of individual apartments is represented in the model by different colours.
