This square was only recently renamed after media mogul Axel Springer (1912-1985), but the building where Springer used to work has been a feature here since 1954. Built by Ferdinand Streb, it was designed as a publishing house and still serves as such today, even though the headquarters of the Axel Springer publishing empire moved to Berlin in 1967. The building was put under a preservation order in 1996 and an annex was opened a year later to house temporary exhibitions and other events.
