The Sony Center is located on Potsdamer Platz in the western center of Berlin. Architect Helmet Jahn designed this modern complex full of light, stone and steel, which was opened in 2000.
It consists of seven buildings covering a floor area of 26,000 square meters. The buildings are situated on the outer edges of the complex and the central triangular space is a thoroughfare for the public. It is covered in a tent like structure and landscaped with plants.
The Sony Center was designed for a mixture of uses, which includes cafes, apartments, restaurants, shops, cinemas, office space and entertainment venues. Berlin's Film Museum is located within the complex as is Sony's European headquarters. There is also an IMAX, 3D cinema.
It was designed with the environment in mind. Rainwater is collected and used for toilet flushing and many energy saving devices have been incorporated into the building design.
