"The Sony Center on Potsdamer Platz stands out for its unique architecture. The ensemble of seven individual buildings houses cinemas, a museum, restaurants, offices and apartments. Jahn's most important project in Berlin is the Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz, a steel and glass-dominated ensemble of seven individual buildings. Here you will find offices, apartments, cinemas and restaurants, a "movie house" and the Sony European headquarters. The center of the triangular area is formed by the oval "Forum", which sees itself as part of the public urban space and therefore not separated from the surrounding streets. A spectacular engineering feat is the roof construction: the fanned-out canvas tent roof is fastened with tie rods to the steel ring that rests on the surrounding buildings.
