Axel Springer building in Berlin, by OMA

 
In 2013 the German publishing group Axel Springer called a competition to expand its Berlin headquarters with a new building that would be both a symbol and a setting for its shift from traditional printing to digital media. Containing 52,000 square meters of work space for over 3,000 employees, the prism adapts to the shape of the plot and is pierced diagonally by a huge void opening out toward the company’s preexisting facilities. This 45-meter-high atrium resulted from terracing the floors and connecting sections through thirteen bridges. The terrace forms are symmetrically repeated above to form the atrium’s roof, where large skylights brighten up space strategically. On the ground floor are spaces of a public nature, intended to open up the building to the city, such as studios, event and exhibition halls, and restaurants. Three stories are open to the public: the lobby downstairs, a bridge over the atrium offering a view of publishing goings-on, and a rooftop bar.
