Not true at all.

And anyway... Why care at all? Berlin is visible everywhere else. SSC is one huge dick measuring contest. We shouldn't care too much to stick our's in everywhere we come.


And there's more than enough resources in our German forum for you to post here.

And btw - this is a collection thread for smaller projects precisely. All bigger projects have their own threads here. So what do you complain about?

It is built for people, not machines. And this is just the beginning.

I am not German, so I obviously don't know all of the logistical needs of the city.

However I have spent time in Berlin - I loved it - and I cannot see a return to the elaborate and massive 19th century residences and civic buildings. I would imagine it is just too expensive. Of course it would be wonderful, but is it feasible?

This seems like a very reasonable compromise, and it also allows variety and can be adapted to many different types of buildings in a vast metropolis that will become even more important as a city in the future.
I couldn't agree more.

The neotraditionalist Berlin Style is one of a kind. It's true it's not reinventing the wheel - but that's not necessary either.

Berlin has lost so much substance of its grand past - this kind of architecture is badly needed to restore some harmony in the cityscape.

We've seen more than enough modernist experiments in both West and East Berlin. It's great to see that this delusion got settled and we see more humble, timeless and plainly beautiful buildings nowadays.

There'll be more space for freaky, spacy and innovative architecture elsewhere in the city in the future.

According to the "Tagesspiegel" (newspaper) construction of this 65m tall building will start this year just behind the "Alexa" shopping center.

There is still a chance they won't build it like that, so let's hope for the best!

Why only 65m tall? That's nothing.

CITY PALACE (Stadtschloss) - Reconstruction as "Humboldt-Forum" - Museum of World Cultures

So everyone of you who's in love with the Berlin City Palace Reconstruction project (Humboldt-Forum) - check this new compilation thread I created:

BERLIN City Palace (Stadtschloss) - Reconstruction as 'Humboldt-Forum' - References

I just gotta show you these fresh renderings:

It's supposed to be a large museum for World Culture.
Large parts of the Dahlem exhibitions will go to the Humboldt-Forum, including new ones.

Thus it's completing the Museum Island of Berlin to become the biggest and most relevant museum complex
in the world.
(way more so than the Louvre or Eremitage)

Currently, the Museum Island is undergoing severe redevelopment.
So all buildings will be connected to each other and offer more space for grand exhibitions.

There's a Masterplan Museumsinsel - Projektion Zukunft

Visualization, including the City Palace in the back:

Do they have plans to put the rail line underground on modern tunnels?

I'm usually in favor of elevated highways or railways, but in that case the railway is too old and it severs the northern end of the Museum island.

At least they should build some new sleek viaduct, like something from Calatrava, to replace it. However, it is an important rail link in Berlin S-Bahn's network and it can't be shut down for couple years, so a new tunnel is the only feasible replacement to that old crap viaduct.

The S-Bahn elevated line in Berlin is sacred! It should be protected as a world heritage site by the Unesco Additionally I don't think the viaduct is so old and crappy, and definitely I prefer to leave as it is as to let Caratabla build another one of his copy/paste mega-expensive structures.

What are you talking about? There is no innovation on the special structures of Berlin S-Bahn. Just the same viaducts and embankments build elsewhere.

Nothing really special from an engineering viewpoint.

Either way: bury that railway or build new viaducts.

How many Caratabla bridges would you like to have then? 5? 10? I'm just about to forward your message to Mr. Wowereit, the city major. I'm pretty sure he would be pleased to satisfy your personal requirements, after all Berlin has all its needs covered and they're freaking out to find ways to burn the city's remaining budget.
