2008 the Italian architecture firm Franco Stella won the architecture competition regarding the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace/Humboldt Forum. Franco Stella’s draft for the reinvention was to combine both the baroque and contemporary architecture by reconstructing three of the four historical facades and have one modern facade.
In connection with the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace, Fletco presented the hardwearing flat-woven carpet quality Nordic for Franco Stella and was – among many European floor-covering suppliers – chosen as carpet supplier for the great project. Fletco has delivered 4000 m2 of a special made colour in the carpet quality Nordic.
On the 250th Birthday of Alexander von Humboldt, the Humboldt Forum and the Goethe-Institut will join force to stage a two-day public festival on 13 and 14 September 2019 in the Berlin Palace. Fletco will of course attend the celebration.
The Humboldt Forum will first open in phases beginning in September 2020.
Below you can see some photos of the impressive reconstruction – photos from the inside will come, as soon as we get them.
