"The urban transformation of "Breitscheidplatz/ Berlin"

The radical change of Breitscheidplatz started after the Second World War, it became the center of West-Berlin. Several different Streets were implemented, the square was enlarged, the Europa-Center was build and at present additional high rise buildings are under construction.

In the center of the square is the famous "Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche" and nearby are the "Bikini Center" and the "Berlin Zoo".

Breitscheidplatz is transformed into a business and tourist area. The Students in MMH have different backgrounds, therefore the analysis if the area could be considered from a touristic, an archeological, an urban and a heritage view on ist.

The result of the Studi can be presented in the form of texts, drawings, videos, etc.
