Architect Daniel Libeskind’s ‘Berlin Dreams’ is a piece of glass architecture based on nine invisible lines traced through Potsdamer Platz, after it was No Man’s Land between East and West Berlin, yet before it was rebuilt. The installation was presented as part of the Urban Stories exhibition held at Palazzo Litta during Milan Design Week 2014.
“Each of the 9 ‘Muse Lines’ represents a cluster of architectonic typologies representing Berlin’s civic history: from the tavern to the graveyard, concert hall, library, hospital, school, shelter, festival, moving monuments, sacred wilderness, etc. that works like a temporal map or spatial clock, demarcating a matrix of historical figures, disciplines, languages, events, colors, shapes and times of the day etched invisibly over the city’s displaced center.” say event organizers Mosca Partners.
“A geometric form arises out of the intersection of certain points along this matrix like the wing of an angel of the future.” Berlin Dreams was sponsored by AGC Glass Europe in collaboration with Fiam Italia.
