True but we need to convert talk into action. Berlin is getting on with it. I like the Berlin and Hamburg threads by the way, some really good stylish buildings being built.

Agree entirely! Of course architecture like anything else has to evolve and advance but that does not in itself mean tearing up everything learnt in past and designing places that are in the main unfit for human purpose. There are some great "modern" buildings but far too many are bland,boring or just plain hideous and only serve as a monument to the architect's ego and deface the city environment where they are indiscriminately placed.

Facade Reconstruction for Historical Gründerzeit Building | Schöneberg | Ansbacher Straße 30 / Passauer Straße 38

The district of Berlin-Schöneberg is getting a spectacular facade reconstruction:

This poor turd

http://abload.de/img/dscn0863kjpqbe3srt.jpg

will be turned into this!

http://www.fb-asset-holding.de/pages...ison-ouest.php


https://www.schaak-immobilien.com/De...lin-Mitte.html


http://www.panterasothebysrealty.com...-ouest-berlin/


The project is called Maison Ouest and is located at Ansbacher Straße 30 / Passauer Straße 38.
It's quite close to the famed KaDeWe department store.

I'm not that sure how it looked like before, but it might come close. Of course you prefer the rotting gray, bland, de-stuccoed current "facade", no surprise there.

You should check this thread out Suburbanist, swathes of mindboggling kitsch for you:
