Exhibition: St. Mary's Church in Berlin


Berlin's medieval St. Marienkirche is recognised as one of the city's oldest buildings. It was constructed near the Alexanderplatz in the 13th century and, today, serves as the Protestant bishop's see.

According to the outlines provided by the employing architect's office, the desired result was an appealing exhibition that was both cautiously integrated into the listed hall church and expandable.

For the sake of preserving the unique spatial structure, Steeltown has developed a shapely aluminium suspended construction that comfortably nestles to the wall while being non-slip at the same time. The focus is clearly on the exhibits.


Employer: Architekturbüro Abri und Raabe
Requirements: Sensitive, listed building; high-quality, expandable exhibition system that is completely self-supporting.
