The Sony Center - Potsdamer Platz, Berlin, Germany

Potsdamer Platz
Potsdamer Platz was once an important and bustling centre of Berlin.  Much of it was destroyed by bombing in World War II and the destruction continued during the creation of the no-man's-land behind the Berlin Wall.  After the Wall came down the area once again became an important focal point for the reunited city.  At the centre of the redevelopment of the site is Helmut Jahn's Sony Centre.

The Center, which is located next to the Potsdamer Platz railway station, contains a mixture of retail, service, cultural, office and residential buildings arranged around an open plaza with a spectacular roof.
