As a sequel to the acclaimed publication Elektropolis Berlin - Historische Bauten der Stromverteilung from 2000, the book presents more than 20 large and small decommissioned transformer stations throughout Berlin. Besides well-known buildings by Franz Heinrich Schwechten and Hans Heinrich Müller, many architectonically sophisticated edifices from the 1950s and 60s are introduced here for he first time. All featured transformer stations have been put out of operation due to technical advancement. A possible reuse will start a second life-cycle and might have very beneficial effects on the urban surroundings in which all buildings are embedded. To illustrate the wide variety of possibilities for the reuse of former power and transformer stations, the publication not only displays a selection of currently available buildings, but also gives an inspiring overview of stations that have already started their „second life“.
