I like the Falkenberg project. Looks futuristic, modern and sleek.

I dislike these low-rises with 4 floors, with the upper one receded. Looks like patchy buildings that were retooled with an additional floor. They should at least use glass walls to make it more like a cube.

No, that's why it's suburbia.

Anyway, I don't like these designs either. Graft had some good designs. But these rowhomes/solitary huts look outdated and monotonously modernist before they're even built.

I like them. Look at a typical suburban Neubaugebiet with it's chaos and cheap designs. This looks a million times better. It's original, high quality and forms a distinct homogenious character. Suburban developments should always be carried out by a single developer. We have been spared misery of this kind:

Well, I rather fancy a neighborhood of these than the greyish ultra-modernist Graft homes.

I'm just thinking of the student district called "Holzhausen" located in Stralsund. It's amazing.
Sole architectural harmony also creates a sense of community there. The modernist-styled areas of this kind I got to know rather seem to lack such a harmonious community effect.

That looks horrible, the worst plastered pre-fab buildings.

It remembers hastily built shelter houses they can pop up on a flat terrain to accommodate a sudden inflow of people (Netherlands had some of them built in the 1990s to accommodate refugees from the Balkans).

Decoration is irrelevant to create any "sense of community". That depends on demographics. Any place where a lot of students live will often have some sort of distinct activity due to the concentration of young people with plenty of spare time in a single place - regardless of architecture of buildings.

It's not beautiful stuff what I've shown. But still - it's regional colors and materials. And still more preferable than a modernist suburbia for most people, like it or not.

I just hope the new Berlin classicism also spreads where the density isn't as intense and where regular rowhomes and detached houses get built. You won't stop it from doing so anyway.

Interestingly it's many young people who prefer to live in spacious, lightflood 19th century mansions and blocks - or new buildings that rediscover these qualities.

Will more buildings be built alongside the "East Side Gallery"?

Only one tower for now, i think, the rest of the area between the river Spree and the East Side Area still free for now...

p.s.: Suburbanist, are you from Berlin?

Completely wasted potential at Humboldthafen... Thanks, Regula Lüscher!

Within a decade they will finally notice, what they did to the area around the Central Station. They made into an unoriginal, mediocre, provincial wasteland, every Berliner and Berlin-visitor will want to leave behind as soon as possible, to get to the other parts of the city.

Those buildings of the winning desing are awesome for low-rises. There is nothing "provincial" about them. They have a net post-modern design, a good replacement for the wasteland the area once was. I liked the 3rd place more than the 2nd one, though it is still inferior to the winner IMO.

However, I still think that area would be perfect for a cluster of high-rises on the 100-150m range.

^ I also don't understand why it shouldn't be higher. The design is nice though.
