Yeah, that Hochlaus aus Eisen und Glas looks like a building that could have been built in the early 90s and the Friedrichstrasse Office Building like something that could have been built today and would look great.

I always wonder why no one takes this never built designs, not only from Mies, but from other architects too, and continue developing them to finally build them somewhere? It would definitely be great.

Maybe one day, who knows. If they can re-build the Lighthouse of Alexandria they can surely build these.

The Gropius Tribune Tower design would also be nice to build.

The interior has changed considerably and likely by complete coincidence, currently mimics a style like the older pre-Great Depression Statler Hotels.

I'm seeing some Wagner in these designs, especially with the open gaps in the siding. Very cool.
