Scope and Content

The project series documents the 1983 design entry for the competition of the Prinz-Albrecht-Palais Monument to Gestapo victims. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 18/80. The office assigned the date 1983 for this project. This project was submitted to the International Architectural Exhibition Berlin competition (International Bauaustellung, IBA, circa 1979-1987), an urban renewal strategy for West Berlin, Germany. Siza had previously submitted four other projects to this competition: the Görtlitzer Bad swimming pool, Block 70 and 89 (Fränkelufer residential complex), Bonjour Tristesse (Block 121), and Block 11-12. He would also submit a design proposal to the IBA competition for the Kulturforum.

According to the documentation from the IBA competition, entries for the memorial were to include a pedestrian walkway that cut through the memorial parallel to Schöneberger strasse leading to Kochstrasse. Entries were also to include a playground and along Stresemann strasse there was to be the addition of a two storey building and a corner building. Other requested components included a parking lot and a partial reconstruction of the Fine Arts School.

Documenting the design proposal are conceptual and design development drawings, including studies, a site axonometric drawing, ground plan, site plan and north, south, and east elevations. Also included is textual documentation on the competition as well as correspondence from IBA officials such as Marion Wilbert. Photographic materials consist of five slides of drawings for the project.
