Wow, the design is horrible.

I really wish they'd build more traditional architecture instead.

Is there no chance the Portal concept will be adopted and built?

There might be a chance in another spot, but I fear this kind of 70s futuristic brutalism is completely worn-out and not really sought after.

None of the architecture is decided yet. All you see is masterplans for the arrangement of the buildings and use mixes, visualised with placeholder designs.

The Portal concept is considered 70s brutalism? I don't see it as a concrete mass but a transparent, open, and flowing design.

In any event, good to know the final design is yet to be determined. Let's hope it has uniqueness, links to historical aspects of the area, and very Berlin.

Very boring and bad project. But was expected as Berlin doesn't think progressive in terms of architecture.

Some people have got such impressive math skills that they think that 8% is a majority. And by that I would have to assume that everyone, just because he or she is Muslim would be accustomed to traditional Islamic architecture which of course a bunch of nonsense.

Architecture is not decidet yet (each tower will get a competition). The Masterplan is still shit. Looks like the area is suffering from periodontosis

When major urban redevelopment projects get started in Berlin, is there a set of clear objectives and goals--architectural, historical, social, cultural, long term value--that are developed before design work begins and against which design options can be evaluated?
