Archeological dig, 2016 - 2017
Creation of a ground show-window in accord with monuments-preservation specifications at the former Petriplatz (located at Scharrenstraße 22, in Berlin).
From 2007 to 2009 the former Petriplatz area saw extensive archeological digging. In the eastern part of the digging area, adjoining the former Cölln Townhall, foundations and other finds, dating from the 12th to early 20th century, were exposed. Upon conclusion of the digs, the area was covered with geo-fleece and soil. A few years later the lot was sold subject to several monuments-preservation conditions. After shell construction was finished, the builder (HOCHTIEF Building Ltd.) removed parts of the soil cover. Buch & Schudrowitz were then charged with further exposure of the remaining dig site, securing historical foundations and flooring, and to lay packed-clay flooring and to construct a visitor’s platform.
