Funkhaus was built in the 1950s as the radio broadcasting center for East Germany within the USSR. The design of the Funkhaus came out of three founding principles - perfection, practicality and a focus on creative production.
When the wall fell, the Funkhaus was freed and almost forgotten - had it not been for its magnificent sound structure.
Today the Funkhaus is being resurrected as a broadcasting centre for our time - where creation, production and exhibition are all united within one magnificent and enormous complex - one that fosters experimentation and innovation.
Building on its legacy as a network of expertly engineered studios and performance spaces, it is becoming a cultural enterprise befitting the international artistic and innovative epicentre that Berlin has become.
As of today, the Funkhaus attracts visionary artists across a variety of disciplines, with a focus on music, to create and collaborate within these one of a kind acoustic environments, to showcase their talents and expand the possibilities of their creative ambitions.
