Mainstation - Lehrter Bahnhof, Berlin, Construction-thread

I know a bit late but better late than never!

Some Facts:

- The station will be the largest in Europe (I'm not sure if it will the the largest in the world) and the most expensive in the world.
- The 321 m long glass roof of the east-west hall is constructed as a lattice shell of almost square net elements varying in dimension
- By 2010 transport planners estimate more than 55 million long-distance visitors to Berlin and 85 million regional passengers.

Design: Meinhard von Gerkan
Client: Deutsche Bahn AG
Construction period: 996-2006
Gross floor area:180,000 m²

Leipzig was the largest of the world... so if Berlin railway station becomes the largest of Europe, it's automatically the largest of the world...

when they finished it I will go to Berlin just to see that beautiful train station
this building with the square water pool is fenomenal and trains above it !!!!!!
and this gate with columns as the enterance to the river
I am almost sure that I can state that it is the greatest modern project I have ever seen
but one thing I don't like - this round tower - doesn't suit there
