Kosmos cinema, Berlin, August 2021
This attractive building was built in 1961 as one of the largest and most modern cinemas in GDR. Its smooth colour-flecked exterior really stands out amongst its surrounding buildings on Karl-Marx-Allee. Both its name and its design were inspired by the space race of the times; even the interior lights were built to resemble the jets of a space rocket. The place has been an event centre since 2006.
