Out of Space: ICC Internationales Congress Centrum Berlin
A gloomy day in February, in the middle of the long grey winter of Berlin? Perfect conditions to visit the ICC Internationales Congress Centrum and do some visual research.
The ICC Internationales Congress Centrum Berlin is located in the Westend, enclosed by multiple highly frequented tracks of the City-Autobahn: built in a time when everything was supposed to be reached by car anyways. The convention center is one of the largest of its kind. The colossus is often compared to a sci-fi spaceship ready for take-off. In its retro-futuristic appearance and its massive dimensions of 320 meters – which is way beyond any scale compared to its surrounding city context – it still is perplexing and stunning even today.
