AEG turbine hall

The AEG Turbine Hall in Berlin’s Moabit district is considered a key work of modern industrial architecture. Peter Behrens designed the temple-like building in 1908/09 with the assistance of civil engineer Karl Bernhard. The building represents a new formal language that places construction itself at the forefront: Large expanses of glazing, the reduction to a few stylistic elements, and the continuous hall space that is not interrupted by any load-bearing elements whatsoever set new architectural standards.
