Architect: Fred Forbát
Waldschulallee 42–43, Berlin
Fred Forbát, former employee of Walter Gropius at the Bauhaus in Weimar, built a sports stadium for the Sport-Club Charlottenburg e.V. in 1930. Located in the Westend of the district Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf at the edge of the settlement Eichkamp, it was intended as a model building. After its completion, the stadium had 1,750 seats and standing places for 36,000 spectators.
The steel skeleton construction of the grandstand roof rests on a three-storey substructure, which housed changing rooms, common rooms and a restaurant. The façade of the 104-metre long grandstand building is structured by the two semi-circularly protruding and glazed staircases. In the northern part of the building there is a somewhat wider hall wing which is used as a gymnasium.
