Affectionately nicknamed “the Berlin Coat Hanger” for its draping form, the airport terminal was the longest continuous building in the world at the time of its construction and still is the third largest. It has a suspended roof that protrudes over arriving aircraft and allows for dry transfers of passengers into the terminal. The roof was designed so that it could also function as a seating area for 20,000 audience members during air shows; the building has 14 large staircases to provide spectators with quick access to the roof. Also noteworthy is the building’s symmetrical construction, which allowed mail to be brought in one side of the building and outgoing mail to be processed on the other. This processing area boosted efficiency at a time when airmail had become popular and was sent to distant destinations on passenger flights.

To make the site independent of the city’s infrastructure, the airport has its own water company with two large water reservoirs under the greenbelt at the Columbiadamm, as well as an electrical works and heating supply. More than five kilometers of tunnels extend under the buildings; parts of these tunnels were used as bomb shelters during World War II.

I am proposing a Business centre redevelopment plan with green zones and sky scrapers.

The advantage of the underground tunnels which used to be bomb shelters, now can be transformed into pathway gateways to enhance the information exchange between zones, at hyper speeds using fibre optics.

Thus the information exchange becomes real time, and conventionally boosting the speed of the process.


The ‘Interior collapse’ manifesto

Interior, whether inhabits the space choreography created by waves through entire human perception, or by servicing spaces to gather the human perception, its movement is reinforcing conventionally discrete, the performative similarity and modulation stretched behind screwed private zones within the chosen space.The spatial mutability therefore is postulated to the formalized interior-type development, which generate multiple space relations within exterior fields enclosed in public space. The fluid development of zones within the interior-type structure should impose potential in building continuity through surrounding space, recognizing its compositional and spatial values from freestanding supports, concealed in similarity, and paradoxically transferring the interior-type development in individual spacial cells.

In comparison to the interior-type surroundings, spacial cells vicinity are important due to its necessary relevance in abolition of enclosed spaces. The perception of surroundings is perceived as space self-preservation and therefore should expand the the interior-type continuity, reaching spacial mutability which should juxtapose the spatial fluidity acquiring directly open space.

The interior-type development is thus interior and exterior in its transparency openness, spanning infinity.
