 Case Study: Jahrhunderthalle
The City Building Commissioner, Max Berg(1), was under pressure to bring Breslau back into the limelight of the eastern part of the Preussen Empire as the "Metropole des Ostens." Berg had been chosen to come to Breslau in 1909 to begin the design of the main hall of the large exhibition.
Like von Thiersch before him, Berg was also faced with the difficult task of satisfying the specific wish of the city fathersto a multi-purpose hall: a longitudinally oriented plan was thought to be appropriate for an exhibition hall, and a central plan for a meeting hall.
The design and detailing of these was a direct result of the experience gained in the design and construction of the massive end arches at the Main Train Station in Leipzig (soon to be a case study!).
