The iconic 1960’s Telefunken skyscraper houses independent innovation and technology institutes and various departments of Berlin’s Technical University. Built as Berlin’s tallest office building at the time, it originally featured a grand entrance hall with shop like windows opening onto a square which has been modified to a narrow thoroughfare. The project attempts to re-establish the symmetry of the entrance hall and a connection between the inside and outside of the building on ground level. It proposes to transform the entrance porch into an interactive light box which leads into a new glass cube featuring an interactive information wall about research activities of the various in-house innovation labs.
