The House of the Future is a place for communication, where interdependences between politics, technological developments and society are displayed and addressed by public discussion. The building connects Berlin’s political terrain (Parliament and Government building) with the research institutes of the Charité, the Humboldt University and the Max Planck research institute. An internal street – a kind of elongated foyer – with public, commercial and social facilities picks up on the North-South axes of the Alexander-Ufer, and connects the two main entrances of the building.

Either parts the building – a gently sloping plane functional to a spatially flexible exhibition concept and a cubic volume housing the conference and office spaces – can be accessed from this internal road. On the South, the building completes the traditional block perimeter while on the North – in correspondence to the main train station  – it slopes down with a public terrace landscape.
