taz Neubau Publishing House by E2A Architects
Alexander Zaxarov
Sep 28, 2020

The architectural design of the new house for the taz Neubau by E2A recalls the Moscow "Shabolovka" radio tower by Vladimir G. Shukhov from the early 1920s.

After 25 years at the Rudi-Dutschke-Strasse across from Checkpoint Charlie, the Berlin daily newspaper moves a block further south. The purchase of the plot Friedrichstrasse 20-22 allows the taz to unite its roughly 250 employees in the future media quarters next to the Bessel Park under one roof again.

The structural system of the new house is designed as a network with a minimum of material to achieve the maximal load capacity. All parts have to do the same and only achieve stability together. It is a system without hierarchy. The architectural appearance of the new house for the taz becomes structure and symbol of the organization at the same time. Externally, the network structure appears as a filigree layer with French balconies. It spans the new building and gives it its lightness. The thirteen-meter, free-spanning office floors create a row-like, workshop atmosphere and are able to respond flexibly to a variety of different forms of use.
