ANNOTATIONS
 
 
The building complex was heavy damaged from the war events. In the 1978/1981 it has been demolished and reconstructed like a theatre to assign as center of the theatrical group “Schaubühne am Halleschen Ufer”. The reconstruction, executed from architect Jürgen Sawade, has been realized faithfully to the original building as far as the external parts, while the inside has been modified for the new theatrical destination.
