awesome old architecture of the church, the gate, the palace and other old structures
and the modern ones are just sleek and breathtaking.

Continuing to dive into Berlin's modern architecture fairy-tale...

20.



21.



22.



23. Especially beautiful it gets in evening and at night, when quite many buildings illuminates



24.



25. Future



26. Something different - older?



27.



28. If I'm not mistaken this is the new parliament building? See how they use the concept of transparency.



29.



30. Another futuristic building



31. Back to Potsdamer Platz



32.

This is the "Bundeskanzleramt" (chancellery). The parliament is the old building with the glass cupola.

awesome and I love your night shots. You were lucky as you could see the whole city unlike me when I visited her when it was still divided. Reichstag then was a museum of WW2 mementos and memorabilias (and I assume they still display those or some of those) and the collection fo Oriental blue porcelains at the Charlottenburg palace is really impressive.

Even the typically ugliest areas in the cities - areas around railway - in Berlin consists of some nice modern architecture!

33.



34.



35. Pretty amazing architecture for a shopping center far out in the suburbs...



36. Some apartment buildings



37.

The city certainly seems to have an atmosphere. It's the X factor. You don't what it is but it intrigues you.

Its just an Information center for the upcoming "Humboldt Forum/Berlin Palace". The box is not a Permanent building.
Anyway, nice photos

I like those modern crapers for their great architectural designs...one is unique from the other and each has its own esthetic value.

First time viewing this collection, and I am truly impressed by the quality of photos you've taken, especially with the amount of details you've provided with each structure. I definitely like the shopping mall image (picture 35) a LOT: not only it looks truly unique architecture-wise, it also looks really functional and unique, such that I will really spend a lot of time taking pictures of that mall alone than shopping there! It gives me that wow factor that really draws me into your splendid thread, and I've already bookmarked it for future reference!

Also, pictures 20, 22, and 24 look really amazing: that building on image 20 makes me think that it is either an office building, another shopping center, or a government building because of its modern and sleek design, while the riverside shots on image 22 and 24 truly makes me happy, not just because of the amount of open space that allows me to look at the building in greater depth, but also the relative calm nature of the area truly speaks to me as a city planner looking for a balance of density and space at the same time. And image 28 looks ultra-modern to be Germany's Parliament Building: I truly love the near-transparent look of the structure, with lots of windows, some greenery on the side, and not too dense (unlike most government buildings that have a faux Greek Parthenon-style exteriors). To me, that is a really cool and sleek public building that I believe can be emulated by other countries, in which I can say is a mark of efficiency.

I truly love your collection my friend! Keep those excellent images coming!
