ICC – Internationales Congress Centrum Berlin

The International Congress Centre Berlin (ICC Berlin) in Berlin's Westend district of Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf was one of the world's largest convention centres. The 313-metre-long, 89-metre-wide and almost 40-metre-high building was built according to plans by Berlin architects Ralf Schüler and Ursulina Schüler-Witte and opened on 2 April 1979 after four years of construction. A striking feature is the building's silver-grey aluminium façade in the style of high-tech architecture.

The ICC Berlin is one of the most important buildings of the German post-war period. With construction costs of more than 924 million marks (today around 1.194 billion euros), it was the most expensive building project in the region. The future use of the ICC in Berlin is controversial. High operating costs are said to exceed the income from events, which is why continued operation is questionable. A possible demolition has been discussed, but rejected by many in politics. The question of renovation and financing remains open, as do viable concepts for future use.

During the refugee crisis from 2015 onwards, the ICC served as emergency accommodation for over 500 residents, and later as a first port of call for refugees. The building has been a listed building since 2019.
