WZB 1

Without making an appointment in advance, I was pleasantly surprised to be allowed to get in (there's access control at the entrance) and take pictures of James Stirling's postmodern 1988 Wissenschaftszentrum (WZB) when I visited Berlin last summer.






The site plan of Stirling's addition to the WZB consists of four architectural prototypic forms - amphitheater, campanile, stoa and basilica - surrounding a central garden, which cannot be seen from the outside.








Some pictures of the interior tomorrow ...
