What is exciting about this development? The boring winning design is something a non-descript mid-size city around the world would build...but not a big and wellknown metropolis, which happens to be the capital of one of the richest industrial countries.Finally a thread for this exciting development.
I am aware this isn't final. But are you honestly thinking A) The facades will get any more interesting and B) 90-150m towers will be build? We will get the usual run-off-mill Lüscher grid facades and the towers will be more like 60-90m high.Mate, this isn't about final designs yet. There's not a single architectural design proposed. It's about the masterplan and arrangement of buildings first. And if you check the area, it's to become quite a metropolitan mix that will absorb the enticed passenger. I'm glad they actually intend to build highrises there, that wasn't to be expected at all. Though of course one or two highlight towers (~90-150m) would be great.
The Gleisdreieck is really exciting area in Berlin... long historie of railway, metro, etc...What is exciting about this development?
