and here i've just done a little edit...



That's just a possible view to the future
I used Googlemaps, SSP-diagrams and renderings for analysing
Wondering now, how close i got to the real result.
We will see in a bit more than a year

The weather was not so good, and actually only a small update was planned,
but a 'happening' changed my mind :-)

ATTENTION! Massive Update



03. Oct 2013:







look close! two guys preparing the formwork for climbing up a bit more









now the first setbacks are visible


When i took a closer look, i thought: "Interresting! Looks like the first parts for fixing the fasade.
Now i wonder when they start with it? A few helping-tools are already there!"

and i was aware, installation begins NOW (3. Oct 2013 , 18:10h)
I looked around... where the heck is the heavy loaded truck with the fasade parts? ...


... untill i realized, there is already someting hanging on the crane :-D


~~ TA-DA ~~

Now the first window is placed

The inside position of that part gives me hope that the whole fasade
will look more interresting than the renderings show


Or will they place another window just in front?






after every 3rd floor is a small setback on the east side




detail of the climbing formwork,
and at right is a feature to fix the crane,
which have to rise up soon :-)


.
more pics will come, as i told u , it's mega update :-)

The building this replaced was started in the 20s? The design was very ahead of its time!
