Sony Center

Sony Center Central Forum, Potsdamer Platz, Berlin
Central Forum, Sony Center

Berlin, September 2011

“In the reconstruction of Berlin, Sony Center stands for a new technical vision and order. It is not a building, but a part of the city. The spatial dynamics and variety is contrasted by a minimal and technological attitude. Light, both natural and artificial, is the essence of the design. Sony Center is luminous, not illuminated. Façades and roof act as a fabric which moderates the natural and artificial light. They become a screen. With its characteristics of transparency, permeability to light, reflection and refraction, there is a constant change of images and effects during day and night. Sony Center is a group of buildings for the new age of entertainment.”
(Sony Center, Mimoa)

It does look like a fun place with lots of fun things to see and do. And it would appear you were there on a nice, warm day! We have a Sony TV if that means anything. :)
