Unité d'Habitation of Berlin
Unité d'Habitation of Berlin (referred to as Unité d'Habitation "Typ Berlin" by Le Corbusier) is an apartment building constructed in 1958 in Berlin, Germany. The renowned architect Le Corbusier designed this building in accordance with his Unité d'Habitation concept, which had been previously realized in four similar buildings in France. The structure of the building is characterized by the use of rough-cast concrete, a hallmark of the architectural style now recognized as brutalism. The construction employed prefabricated cast concrete panels and poured ceiling slabs on-site.
Le Corbusier based the building's design on the Modulor system, utilizing no more than 15 Modulor measurements to create the entire structure. Interestingly, this work was later removed from Le Corbusier's body of work, a decision he himself confirmed during his lifetime until his passing in 1965. This exclusion was also reaffirmed posthumously in 1967 in the last authorized publication of his work.
The Berlin Unité d'Habitation is situated to the southeast of the Olympiastadion S-Bahn station in Berlin.
