Dorte Mandrup has revealed visuals of a museum in Berlin that will create a backdrop to the ruins of Anhalter Bahnhof station and tell stories of the people who fled the Nazi regime.
Slated for completion in 2025, the Exilmuseum Berlin will be built on the Askanischer Platz and also spotlight present-day experiences of displacement.
Dorte Mandrup's design has a simple, curved form and is intended to highlight the position of the former Anhalter Bahnhof railway station, from where hundreds of people fled in exile during World War II before it was largely destroyed by bombing in 1943.
The station's ruins, which have since become an important monument, will be kept intact and become the focal point of the museum's entrance behind it.
