Paving the Alexanderplatz Efficiently with a Quasi-Periodic Tiling

See Ulrich Kortenkamp’s paper. Has anyone been in Berlin latley? Has this design been implemented?

Bird's Eye View of the Alexanderplatz Design for a quasi-periodic tiling
Berlin’s Alexanderplatz and the quasi-periodic tiling designed to pave it


  1. According to U. Kortenkamps site, the proposal made it to the final round (as one of three proposals) of the architectural competition, but failed to win and will not be implemented.

  2. 🙂 yes, it’s a pity, unfortunately they did not implement it.

    Would have been wonderful…


  3. Im going Berlin on sunday, excited !!!
