House of the World’s Cultures, Berlin


Unification of contemporary arts

Visual and performing arts. Music, literature and film. Scientific discussions and digital media. Everything is combined to a unique program. As part of a competition, the “HKW” – House of the World’s Cultures – in Berlin’s government quarter needed to be updated to today’s technical standards, while the historical structure of the building was to be maintained. Our lighting concept of the competition intended to put the existing glass brick facade into scene via the use of hidden LED-lights. The formerly rather inconspicuous entrance area is now highlighted and can therefore guide visitors perfectly.
