The 30-foot tall atrium with 3D facade elements creates a stage for unscripted interaction, while the more discreet sections of the building provide focused, quiet working space for 3,500 employees. The building will also feature a publicly-accessible park on its top.</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/5v/5vmkr184mr2n6tlb.jpg"></p><p>As Rem Koolhaas noted, &ldquo;Over the years, Berlin has been a profound source of inspiration, and with Axel Springer we are thrilled to continue our long engagement with this city.<br>We are lucky to have a client who views architecture as an instrument of change, and with this building, we hope to address a central dilemma of the contemporary office: as computer-based work has become largely intangible and silent, how can people effectively<br>communicate in a workspace which fosters both concentration and vigorous interaction?&rdquo;</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/ld/ldxbhmsyti5vu3l1.jpg"></p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/yp/ypctuqa9g6bz4vyj.jpg"></p><p>For more on the Axel Springer building:</p><ul><li><a href="http://archinect.com/news/article/96568028/oma-wins-axel-springer-berlin-hq-competition" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">OMA wi...</a></li></ul> http://archinect.com/news/article/61253149/post-capitalist-city-2-work-winning-projects POST+CAPITALIST CITY 2#Work - Winning Projects Alexander Walter 2012-11-12T15:31:00-05:00 >2012-11-19T18:06:00-05:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/8a/8a69wyjer8t6se0o.jpg" width="650" height="450" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Last month, we published the winners of the international ideas competition POST+CAPITALIST CITY, #1Shop.
