Scope and Content

This project subseries documents the residential complex Bonjour Tristesse after Siza won the competition for Block 121. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 2/80 A. The office assigned the date 1980 for this project.

Among materials for the competition phase are conceptual sketches intermingled with sketches of people, design development drawings including drawings for the model, site plans for the competition site, proposed plans, proposed elevations, and plans for the proposed nursery and school extension. Also included are photographs, negatives, and slides for the competition, and general photographs and negatives of Berlin.

Textual documentation includes correspondence from IBA officials, such as Hämer, Kleihues, and Dagmar Tanuschev, as well as letters from Brigitte Cassirer (later Brigitte Fleck). Fleck was responsible for national and international competitions for the Senate of Berlin (1971-1985) and first invited Siza to participate in the IBA competition by entering a design for the Görlitzer Bad swimming pool. Other correspondence included in this project series are letters from Peter Brinkert, Siza’s contact architect in Berlin, in which they discuss the Kita and the Seniors Club Anziani. Furthermore, there is textual documentation from the IBA, as well as historical documentation on the project site and notes.
