Besselpark, Berlin-Kreuzberg

BesselparkThe existing structure of the Besselpark is respected in principle. While square-like areas are oriented towards Friedrichstrasse and Markgrafenstrasse, a generous park meadow extends in the other areas. This is only interrupted by the existing and newly added paths. Here, on the site of the former Prussian observatory, the diagonal "Besselbahnen" take up the theme of the trajectories of the heavenly bodies described by the geodesist Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel. Other elements in the park are also inspired by the motif of light rays and measuring lines.
