Relocating the Kaisersaal
Abstract:The new Sony-Center at Potsdamer Platz is one of the more prominent building projects underway in Berlin. Within this modern office facility, a graceful reminder of Berlin's past, the ornate reception room, the Kaisersaal - often used by the turn-of-the-century emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II - has found a new home. At its original location, the Kaisersaal stood in the path of the Sony-Center project and planned new streets. The architects elected to integrate the room into the new complex, albeit some distance from where it stood. Therefore, the Kaisersaal had to be moved, and this "simple" goal required some inventive engineering solutions.

Structural Engineering International (SEI), the quarterly Journal of IABSE, published since 1991, is the leading international journal of structural engineering dealing with all types of structures and materials. SEI offers its readers a unique blend of short profiles on recent structures, and longer, in-depth technical articles on research, development, design, construction and maintenance. Articles are written by practicing engineers and academia from around the world and reflect the high standards of IABSE. IABSE Peer Review stamps are given to papers that have passed through a highly selective review process and demonstrate a significant contribution to the state of structural engineering knowledge.To recognise contributions of the highest quality, an Outstanding Paper Award is presented each year.
