großer windkanal

from aeon flux, hanna posted in movies by chewing_the_scenery

Berlin's Großer Windkanal (or large wind tunnel) was built in the early 1930s as an aerodynamic testing facility for German aircraft. It's located on Humboldt University's campus at Adlershof along with four other buildings that were used to test aircraft in an area they now call Aerodynamischer Park.

The Windkanal was used as a backdrop in both Aeon Flux from 2005 and Hanna from 2011. In Hanna, this is the building she escapes from when she is first captured. I have no idea what it was used for in Aeon Flux (never saw it), but it's featured prominently on one version of the movie poster.
