A rebuilt, fortified, and unifying force – a symbol of Berlin’s history.

Connecting differences

Architecturally, the Humboldt Forum takes large parts of the Berlin Palace, destroyed in 1945 and blown up in 1950, combines them with modern stylistic elements. The palace was rebuilt in the 18th century according to designs by the architect and sculptor Andreas Schlüter.

The new interpretation by the Italian architect Franco Stella combines tradition and modernity. The building not only reflects ruptures in the history of this location, but at the same time points to unifying differences and thus to the programmatic core of the Humboldt Forum.
