Denkmal für die Moderne - An earnest mashup

...featuring (fragments) of buildings by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Lina Bo Bardi, Oskar Hansen, Le Corbusier, M. Melnikow, Dušan Džamonja - amongst others

A conceptional design of a building on a wasteland in the Berlin city centre, which once was occupied by the old Berlin castle - later on known as a war ruin, a socialist parade ground and a modernist palace.

"The Monument for Modernism is a proposal for Berlin’s contested ‘Schlossplatz’ site. The project relates to a local debate as much as to a wider controversy on the legacy of modernism. The idea of a monument for modernism marks the historicity of modernism and its actuality: designating a situation that we find ourselves living in modernity, as well as a past modernity." Robert Burghardt, autumn 2009
