BBuzzArt - Discover Future Masterpiece

Berlin Carré


The website of Berlin Carré, the failing shopping center at Alexanderplatz, that once housed the art space LEAP reads:

"At the moment we are rebuilding Berlin Carré for you. With the reopening of Berlin Carré, its online presence will also be updated.

Your center management"

The construction of Zentralmarkthalle, the predecessor to Berlin Carré in 1883 at Alexanderplatz, was one of the reasons why the square gained such prominence and the turn of events marginalizing this architectural site in relation to networks of power and capital, made possible the appropriation of the space that became LEAP for a number of years. Now, the former space of LEAP–still bearing traces of what it once was–is awaiting transformation as it is encapsulated inside a larger construction site.
What role can this space play now in the shaping of future possibilities and limitations? Would it, after disappearing into a different architectural arrangement, continue to influence its surroundings? Would it continue to have a presence?
