An urban space that formerly was well defined. A place of importance. Then the war came. And later, the East German urban design that made it a mere traffic space. Sad interstitial green in between the dominant lines of traffic movement. Eight lanes. The concept: the classic park bench, the archetypical rest place. Used for maximum contrast. Creating identity through blatant green. Gaining strong presence by addition, accumulation and arrangement: once lined up, once singular, once opposing each other. An offer for activity away from movement.
