HTK - Akademy of design // Berlin
In the center of Berlin
The new Berlin campus of the HTK - Academy of Design is situated in the creative center of Germany’s administrative and cultural capital: near Potsdamer Platz and the Sony Centre, on the edge of the vibrant Kreuzberg district. Many artistic and cultural highlights such as the New National Art Gallery, the Berlin Philharmonic and the Martin Gropius Building, with its contemporary art and photography exhibitions, are all within walking distance.
THE BRAND NEW CAMPUS
The Berlin campus of the HTK - Academy of Design is centrally located in a building in which creativity can be unleashed and design ideas developed. The building provides seminar rooms, studios, computer rooms and technical facilities with generous amounts of space in which to work.
The Berlin campus provides a central meeting area and a café – ideal for taking a short break from classes and working on projects. The Berlin campus is located in close proximity to a variety of cafés and restaurants and two prestigious shopping malls: Potsdamer Platz Arkaden and LP12 Mall of Berlin – which offers extensive shopping and gastronomy opportunities.
AN INSPIRING ENVIROMENT
The Berlin campus is located near to many famous historical and cultural highlights of Berlin. The surrounding streets also offer fascinating buildings and artefacts from German history: from the huge former wartime aviation ministry complex in Wilhelmstraße to one of the few remaining intact sections of the Berlin Wall in Niederkirchnerstraße. Located on the same road, the Martin-Gropius-Bau is a museum known for its trendsetting art and photography exhibitions.
A short walk away and on the western side of the former Berlin Wall, is the new, modern Berlin: the rebuilt Potsdamer Platz, which before the Second World War was one of the busiest traffic intersections in Europe. During the Cold War years and the division of Germany and Berlin between East and West Superpowers, Potsdamer Platz was a huge, devastated and abandoned wasteland between the American and Soviet sectors.
Following the Fall of Berlin Wall in 1989, Potsdamer Platz is once again at the heart of Berlin, transformed into the dynamic center of the German capital. The high-tech Sony Center, inspired by Mount Fuji in Japan, is home to the Film and Television Museum, a cinema complex and a multitude of entertainment facilities.
