Ready for Takeoff

Constructed between 1936-1941 featuring a design resembling an eagle in flight, Berlin's Tempelhof Airport was envisioned to be a crown jewel in the Third Reich’s ongoing quest for architectural (and racial) dominance.

Following it’s closure in 2008, a group of concerned Berliners created the organization Tempelhofer Freiheit to save this historic urban space and ensure its future takes flight (no pun intended).

Check out the film below created by PBS Unusual Spaces, exploring the history and future of the iconic airport site.
