Musical Theater and Casino, Marlene-Dietrich Platz

Renzo Piano
1998




The Musical Theater and Casino are to the right while the IMAX Theater (also by Piano) is to the left and Piano's Atrium Tower is in the center background. This structure is the largest building on Marlene-Dietrich Platz, which also is the site of the Grand Hyatt Hotel by Moneo. This structure is at the farthest western edge of original site for Potsdamer Platz.
