design as a cultural asset

Im Rahmen der BNDNWK 2022 präsentiert state of DESIGN die Ausstellung STANDING—a state of DESIGN perspective im ALHAMBRA BERLIN. state of DESIGN konzipiert seit 2016 Ausstellungen, Talks, Symposien, Awards und Vortragsreihen und propagiert Design als Kulturgut, das den Zeitgeist aufgreift, mit ausgestaltet und entscheidend mitprägt. STANDING greift dieses Credo auf und präsentiert freie Arbeiten, ikonische und impulsgebende Designobjekte als Materialisierung neuester Erkenntnisse. Sie sind nicht nur Zeitzeugen, sondern gesellschaftlich relevante Blickwinkel und Antworten. Ihnen gemein ist die Identitätsstiftung und ihre Perspektive zu den bewegenden Themen unserer Zeit.

ALHAMBRA BERLIN is a place with a moving history. The former film theatre in Berlin, Charlottenburg was built in 1921/1922 according to the plans of the architect Max Bischoff.


The space used to be the premier location for the world’s first audio film in 1922. In the course of its history, the building went through various renovations and functions. In 1928/29, the original four-story house (first floor to the third floor) was extended by three stories with a simple modern facade. The upper floors were converted into a hotel. Aerial bombs partially destroyed the building during WWII. In 1949 film screenings were initially resumed. Shortly after, it was transformed into a hotel with a ballroom in the former film theatre. Later on, it was used as a training center for gastronomy and hotel businesses.


In 2020, the property was completely rebuilt and brought back to life with a six-story annex office building and the retail space ALHAMBRA BERLIN on the ground floor.


Although not listed as a protected monument by the local authorities, the iconic facade of the original building (first floor to the third floor) was fully reconstructed in its historical form from 1921/22 upon the owner’s request.
