In the reconstruction of Berlin, Sony Center stands for a new technical vision and order. It is not a building, but a part of the city. The spatial dynamics and variety is contrasted by a minimal and technological attitude. Light, both natural and artificial, is the essence of the design. Sony Center is luminous, not illuminated. Façades and roof act as a fabric which moderates the natural and artificial light. They become a screen. With its characteristics of transparency, permeability to light, reflection and refraction, there is a constant change of images and effects during day and night.
Sony Center is a group of buildings for the new age of entertainment. There is a serious effort for tailoring an architecture to the stimulating contemporary confusion of private and public space. (Architects statement)
