Description Change this

The building on Schlesische Str. 1-9 was constructed as part of the IBA 1987. Siza designed the building in a way that it integrated well with the surrounding blocks. At the same time the roofline and plan shape are very unfamiliar to Berlin. The building didn't get his name by the architect, but by an unknown artist who sprayed the title on the top of the building, perhaps alluring to the monotonous grey facade.
