Last of the Big Beasts: the life, death and resurrection of modern monuments

Cordula Zeidler: Palast der Republik, Berlin (Heinz Graffunder and Karl-Ernst Swora), 1973-76 (demolished 2006-09)

The Palast was one of East Germany’s most significant architectural projects. Its design history and its very short use reflect like no other building in the country the currents of East German politics. The building was demolished in 2006 after a controversial debate regarding this construction and its significance in Berlin’s history.
