The project for the UFA Cinema Center is the result of the urban design concept developed for the planning competition PragerstraBe Nord. PragerstraBe was defined as a dynamic spatial sequence, defined by tan-igents and diagonals rather than by axis. The interweaving of public squares, public interiors and passageways was proposed as a way of energizing and densifying the new center of Dresden. The junctures between these urban vectors are defined as public spaces. The UFA Cinema Center is located at one of these junctures; it is formulated as the urban connection between Pragerplatz and Sankt-Petersburger-StraBe. The cinema itself is thereby transformed into a public space.
