Europe’s largest building site

In the 1920s, Potsdamer Platz was Europe’s busiest square, boasting the first automatic traffic lights in the world. During World War II this social hub was razed to the ground. Untouched for almost 50 years, the empty square shifted back into the centre of Berlin when the Wall came down. During the 1990s, Potsdamer Platz became Europe’s largest building site – millions of curious onlookers from around the world came to watch progress from the famous red info box. Altogether, around €17 billion were invested to create the present square.

Daimler House

Moving the Esplanade The Senate of Berlin stipulated that Sony should preserve the “Breakfast Room” and the “Emperors’ Hall” of the Grand Hotel Esplanade, both protected following destruction in World War II. Accordingly, in 1996, the rooms were moved – 1,300 tons were loaded onto wheels and shifted by 75 m (246 ft) during the course of a week.

The historic Emperors’ Hall is today incorporated into the modern Sony Center Top 10 Architects
