The good news is: The place where the German Bundestag met between 1992 and 1999, before it was moved from Bonn to Berlin, is also the symbolic, i.e. converted, place where the Future Construction Congress on the topic of “Bauwende ” is opened. Federal Construction Minister Klara Geywitz is scheduled to speak this Thursday. And according to the two-day program, Heinz Bude addresses the conditions of transformation. From a purely structural point of view, the ex-Bundestag is a good example of repurposing, as the somewhat grandiosely named World Conference Center Bonn uses parts of the ex-Bundeshaus, which was designed by Behnisch & Partner decades ago, including the “New Plenary Hall”.
