The Heavy Load- bearing Body, Schwerbelastungskörper, is an Albert Speer designed bunker-like concrete structure built to study the feasibility of constructing a massive triumphal arch on the site. It is located in the intersection of Dudenstraße with General-Pape-Straße, Berlin.

This is a 3D renderings of photogrammetry 3D scans of the structure. This 3D model is inlcuded in the video Kafka’s Sisters linked below. I recently exhibited this image as an “award winner” at LACDA in Los Angeles and as a C-type print at Sanderson Contemporary Art in Auckland, NZ.
