For 16 years, vacancy in - Lichtspieltheater der Jugend-! Back in 1910, originally built as an establishment for danceevents with orchestramusic. Since then a lot has happened. In the 1950s the building was rebuilt to a movietheatre as a result of the booming development of the filmindustry. Until 1998, when it was closed. Now the former - Lichtspieltheater der Jugend- is located at one of the most prestigious places in the centre of Frankfurt ( Oder), it has no function and is screaming for a revival. The task was the reconstruction and the concomitant restoration of the building. Therefore the focus of the work was initially in existing buildings. With the examination of existing buildings, additional topics were added soon. So the observation of shrinking, eastgerman cities under the influence of the DDR was inevitable. So it is not only revitalize the movie theater, but also to expand it with an appropriate function. A place for urban, public and cultural functions, which creates in an unconventional way a unique attraction to exploring new initiatives in the centre of Frankfurt (Oder).
