Science Meets Art: The Animal Anatomy Theater

tat-hoersaal

Our fascination never stops for this city which just keeps on giving when it comes to amazing locations, and here we are, presenting you one more: the Animal Anatomy Theater. Constructed in 1789 by the same architect who designed the Brandenburg Gate (!), the building is actually the oldest (and definitely the loveliest) academic one still existing in Berlin, having hosted decades of animal dissections. Since 2013, however, it has seen a new life as an experimental exhibition space, under the Hermann von Helmholtz-Zentrum für Kulturtechnik.

This neoclassical gem, conceived by Teatro Anatomico in Padua, had served as an anatomy theater for veterinary students. After extensive restoration, and maintaining the character of a laboratory, it is now a cultural institution hosting students’ research findings, art exhibitions and events, while its great acoustics has been the reason for concerts to take place there as well!

A Design Guide for Berlin

Probably the best thing about Berlin is the fact that it’s so diverse that no matter what you’re interested in, you can find a whole bunch of places here that will enable you to pursue your passion. Same goes for design – apart from such amazing examples of outstanding architectural thought like the Martin Gropius Bau or the St. Agnes Church, there’s also plenty of museums devoted to the subject, like the Bauhaus Archive or the Kunstgewerbemuseum. You can also get inspired by new initiatives of people who’re keen on creating beautiful and functional things, like the guys from Fundamental Berlin or LLot LLov. More about them and similar suggestions after the jump!
