Frieze 3: „The center of the world“
Berlin is without a doubt the most popular city in the world. The exceptionally colourful frieze at the eastern side of HdL shows why.

  • Comparison: old versus new
    Colours, colours, colours! Berlin is even more colourful than it was, more vivid, more beautiful! In order to realize transparent spectral colour effects, Kongo used especially manufactured glass applications...

  • Left: Berlin is attracting
    Even people from less prosperous areas of the world don’t hesitate to spend energy and money to get to the german metropole, even for a short stay. The bravest of them come and sing at the sunday karaoke open air!

  • Middle: history wanted
    Berliners always were inventive. So preserving the incomparable history of their city both is useful for them and for the visitors interested in Berlin history.




  • Right: live and let live!
    The prussian king Friedrich II had a motto: everyone may find their happiness the way they want. One main concern of Berliners is the environment. More and more cyclists (very cool is the puristic fixie) and more and more little helpers eagerly cleaning up the city. But there’s time for cozy togetherness and playing children’s games, too!


The east side of the building is facing away from the hustle and bustle of the Alexanderplatz – and it rightly is. Because this mosaic shows aspects of our life you just can’t measure with a stopwatch or your to-do-list.
