Humboldt Jungle

Alexander von Humboldt developed the idea that all nature is connected, and pioneered concepts of sustainability. 

 

 

Today, the Berlin Humboldt Forum that has his name is without any green space whatsoever. Named after the Humboldt brothers it will become a world center for culture and is housed in the reconstruction of a historical palace. We designed a hanging garden with lianas overgrowing the Prussian palace and a tropical forest for its roof. By means of a ‘Jungle’ covering the palace and opening it up for the Dialogue of Cultures – in reverence to the naturalist and discoverer Alexander von Humboldt.
