Competition: Axel Springer Media Center Berlin

In 2013, the Axel Springer media corporation launched a competition for a new media campus in Berlin/Germany. In this competition, Werner Sobek supported the team of Buro Ole Scheeren (BOS) and designed both the loadbearing structure and the facade. The design proposed by BOS was one of three winners of the architectural competition. It envisages a 20-storey building with a central atrium. On two sides, the atrium is closed off by a filigree cable-stayed facade, allowing for a maximum of transparency and vistas through the building.“
