Is there a city requirement that the color scheme for new transportation hubs must all be shades of gray? The architectural aspects look good, as with the Hauptbahnhof, but the monocrhomatic gray-schemes are lifeless in many ways.

Is there any plans to develop the area opposite the Rotes Rathaus ? Something closer to its original footprint ?

The first neogothic Friedrichswerder Church by renowned Prussian architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel (1824-1831). It once neighboured Schinkel's Bauakademie (Construction Academy), which will be reconstructed in the years to come. I think it's very elegant.

There's a lovely sculpture gallery inside today:

The position: It's behind the Palace construction site and next to the Bauakademie canvas simulation (this is an older aerial view, when the PdR was still getting torn down).

The Church is currently closed for the construction of condos next to it and the associated construction inconveniences. The sculptures inside are a fantastic collection. The original of Queen Luise and her sister is there, shown in the center of the previous post.

But it's actually "just" the original gypsum cast. The original marble statue is showcased in the Old National Gallery on Museum Island.

It was celebrated by the public and art critics at the time of it's completion, but deemed too lewd and suggestive (the intimate hug, the delicate clothing, that traces the girls' bodies very closely etc.) by the royal family, especially portraying two real Prussian princesses. It found it's way into the Old National Gallery pretty late and was hidden away in a dark corner of the original City Palace. And speaking of the City Palace, we are now on topic again.

It appears as though they're applying dressed stone to the base in the Schlueterhof.

Ludi and his Denglish. XD
"castlebridge", "Breitestreet", "Alexandersquare"...

You can either just leave the German names as they are, or you have to correctly translate them as:
-"Palace Bridge". Always capitalize a name, don't write it as one word, as we Germans do and always remember: Schloss=palace, Burg=castle
-"Broad Street". You can't leave one word German and just translate the other.
-"Alexander Square"

But thanks so much for the fresh and extensive batch of pictures! I knew, the walls were going to be thick, but I wouldn't have thought, that they were going to be this thick, wow! O:
