Topography of Terror
The establishment of the Topography of Terror Foundation was followed by the decision to build a visitors’ and documentation centre.
In 1993, the architectural competition was won by the design of the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. By July 1999, however, no more than the basement and three stairwell towers had been completed. After various delays due to financial and technical problems, construction was discontinued.
In May 2004, the Federal government and Berlin Senate agreed on stopping the Zumthor project and on a new public invitation to tender.
Until the new building is completed, the exhibition “Topography of Terror” will be presented open-air in the excavations along Niederkirchnerstrasse.
