New Venue: DMY Berlin at Tempelhof Airport

Posted by Nora Schmidt on 26.05.2010 - Tagged as: , , ,

Airfield of Berlin Tempelhof

It is one of the most important places of remembrance of Berlin history: The former city Airport Tempelhof was built by the Nazis in 1941 and after World War II used for the famous Berlin Airlift, when Soviet guards halted all passenger trains and traffic on the autobahn to West-Berlin. Since the official air traffic stopped in 2008 the impressive building, which once used to be the world’s biggest building in terms of surface area, is used as event and exhibition area. The giant manoeuvring field with its landing strips is open to the public and partly dedicated to a nature reserve for ground-breeding birds.

From 9 – 13 June the international design festival DMY Berlin will take place with over 11.000 square meters exhibition space, filled with inspirational prototypes and new product evolutions by over 400 designers. Architonic is delighted to be media partners of this inspiring event.
