Monument to Modernity
WARSAW UNDER CONSTRUCTION 5

  • Monument to Modernity

The term ‘promising’ is more and more frequently applied to describe various projects for rehabilitation of historical buildings.

The rebuilding of the Berlin castle – Stadtschloss – is one of many examples of the global trend of such “traditionalism”. On the one hand, our environment is subjected to a continuous process of modernisation, on the other hand, the process is no longer supported by positive visions of the future.

The architect Robert Burghardt suggests a different approach and a new method of reconstruction. “Denkmal für die Moderne (Monument to Modernity)”, which is to be placed in the Berlin Castle Square, is a collage made up of pieces of various examples of modern architecture on a natural - 1:1 - scale. How important are these buildings today, the design of which incorporated the promise of a better life?
