O2 World Berlin
Berlin, Germany

Mercedes-Benz Arena (formerly known as O2 World Berlin) is one of the most modern multifunctional event halls. It was opened in Berlin in 2008. The Arena is home to the Berlin Eisbären hockey team and to Alba Berlin, the most successful German basketball team of the past twenty years. During the “Berlin leuchtet 2013” (Shining Berlin 2013) festival, artist Jakob Kupfer turned the building into one of the largest temporary art installations worldwide. For this purpose, a surface of 116 x 12 metres of the glass façade was illuminated with 300,000 LED clusters.
