After refurbishment and restructuring as a house with an open concept, the Kulturpalast Dresden in the centre of the city has been given a new lease of life. gmp Architekten devised a holistic architectural principle for the new fusion of culture, education, and entertainment, based on a confident redevelopment of a traditional civic meeting place. A respectful and exciting dialogue unfolds between the facade, renovated in accordance with its listed status, and the new concert hall of international standing at the core of the building, with carefully designed spaces and transitions.

In this volume, the architects responsible present the architecture of Kulturpalast Dresden in detail with plans, images, and texts. An essay by the architecture critic Falk Jaeger about the eventful history of the building and photographs by Christian Gahl complete the comprehensive presentation of the project.
