Hermann Zweigenthal, Berlin, 1929
Docomomo Germany and Docomomo International are joining efforts and supports to protect this parking garage in Berlin from being demolished. The building’s owners want to tear it down, and they took the first step last month by applying to end its status as a landmark, granted in 1991. Their argument is that thestructure is weakening and that repairs would be too costly for the income thegarage generates.
Docomomo International and Docomomo Germany have supported the petition of the open letter to the owner; the Senate of Berlin and other institutions involved.
