Let’s talk about this Alexanderplatz poster! The green tiles at the station were designed by German architect Alfred Grenander in the 1920s. At that time, the city of Berlin was experiencing a boom in underground public transportation, and a durable and distinctive design was needed for metro stations.

Grenander chose the color green for the tiles because it was a color that evoked tranquility and harmony, something he considered important for the atmosphere of metro stations. In addition, green was a color associated with nature and life, which Grenander believed would help passengers feel more relaxed and secure while traveling on the metro.

Since then, green tiles have become an integral part of Berlin’s culture and can be found in many other metro stations in the city. Over the years, the tiles have undergone some modifications but are still recognized as an emblematic element of Berlin’s public transportation.

Our illustration is a perfect way to capture the beauty and simplicity of the Alexanderplatz metro station. It is a unique piece that pays homage to a piece of Berlin’s history and culture and is perfect for anyone who wants to have a beautiful memory of the city in their home or workplace. Whether as a gift or as an addition to your own collection, this illustration is a wonderful way to remember Berlin!
