Munich Re - Berliner Strasse: The complete renewal of the façade of an administration building from the 1980s was used by the architects Sauerbruch Hutton as part of a general refurbishment to transform a previously faceless building into an elegant and lively complex of buildings. The new shell ensures thermal insulation, sound and sun protection, daylighting and natural ventilation of the office spaces.

It houses the headquarters of the housing association GSW and stands near the former border crossing Checkpoint Charlie. The high-rise is one of the most striking new buildings in Berlin. The unique facade mosaic and the flying roof, visible from afar, are striking.

Michael Nguyen dedicates a photo series to the true masterpiece of facade art by the architecture firm Sauerbruch Hutton. The Photo Artist from Munich shows the spectacular facade of the building: the Munich Re in Munich at Berliner Straße. Visual highlights of the urban have emerged here, the details of which Nguyen examines with precision photography.
Not faces, but rather masks surround us on the streets: more or less statically present in front of the supporting structures and the spaces filled with life, to grasp them, frame them, cultivate them, and provide them with an overarching expression, thus creating euphony or also dissonance in the building concert of the urban space as well-defined, virtuously played instruments.
