Across the River

Do I understand it correctly that the new building going up across the river from the west facade of the new Humboldt Forum is an apartment block or is that a commercial structure?

Thank you so much, Ludi, for posting these, especially the close-up of the windows. The carved lintels are gorgeous!

Schlüterhof

Does the name "Schlüterhof" translate into English or is that area just named after someone?

The western and southern facades are making progress. Do you think we might be seeing the entire western entrance arch by the end of 2015?

Nothing at all on the northern facade?

It's named after Andreas Schlüter, it's architect:

Translated to English it would be called "Schlüter Court".

How it will look in the future:

Nope. Don't have the official graphic right now, but at the end of this year they plan to be finished with only the ground floor and first floor of the three baroque facades.

It's a brilliant building. But I still can't help but feel utterly repulsed when I take so much as a glance at the modernist abomination on the end. It seems like such an affront to an otherwise beautiful structure.

Look what I found :

Design for an expansion of the Berlin Stadtschloss, 1887. Germany.

Looks extremely similar to Hamburg City Hall, just without the middle tower:

The modern extension provides a nice contrast. No need to act so stuck-up about it, be glad you're getting this rebuilt in the first place.

How can you say that? Look at the attention to artistic technique and detail; the statement of a complex yet subtle worldview and assertion that man can create, learn, explore and attain an understanding of truth and beauty, or at least will sacrifice all he has to do so.

The modernist facade will serve as a vivid example of how lifeless and sterile modern architecture is compared to the traditional facades, making the argument for restoring the building by its existence.

It's not lifeless nor sterile.

You may not have noticed, but at some point in the mid 20th Century people started to appreciate simplicity in design - they found that all kinds of designs from buildings to furniture were very beautiful and peaceful when they weren't covbered in superfluous ornamentation, frills and symbols related to the past, historic prioriities, unpleasant memories and regrettable power structures.

Now, this movement has become mainstream - most people keep their homes in this simple elegant style and most buildings try to be simple, rigorous, and calm - and beauty can be found in that simplicity.

Yes, frills and decoration and nostalgia still appeat to people, especially when it is authentic and originates from a time when those things mattered and were viewed differently - historic cities, antiques etc. However, when we mimic those styles today, it is often seen as inauthentic - we also aren't very good at it because we don't understand it anymore.

So I think that the moden end of the Schloss will be beautiful to many people and will remind them that this castle is a totally new building constructed in the era where that kind of design means something.

I think the modern side of the castle is plain, but I don't think it's something bad. Imagine a deconstructivist montrosity in its place, that would be quite disturbing. This side of the castle is quiet, unnoticeable and it probably won't bring disharmony to the whole building. So, be happy, 'cause God knows what would, for instance, Frank Gehry build on that side.
