The architecture of the building itself is very impressive. A striking construction of glass and steel with 15 elliptical arches gives the building its idiosyncratic character. It is one of the architectural sights of the city.
The Ludwig Erhard Building also houses the headquarters of the Berlin Chamber of Industry and Commerce and institutions of the regional economy. Around 2,000 events related to education take place every year – an ideal location for Christiani to present learning concepts and teaching systems for education and training and, above all, to be able to offer information events, seminars and workshops on site.
The Berlin Competence Centre can also be seen as a hub for associations and educational organisations. As is already the case at the other Christiani locations, the aim in Berlin is to enter into an exchange on public education topics, such as examinations in trade and industry. Corresponding formats are already being planned.
