it’s a really unusual rainy summer in berlin. we do have great warm and sunny weather but we also have really impressive showers quite often. but then again – photo opportunities, yay!

this is the siegessäule (victory column) in berlin tiergarten. i’ve featured it from its top quite a while ago already here.

handbags

handbagsafter (very) little research i found out that this sculpture by berlin-based artist joachim schmettau had been away for restoration (and if you have a look at the wikipedia page linked above you can see why this was good idea) and those were the days when it was put back into its place at altonaer strasse, berlin tiergarten. it’s descriptively adequately called hand mit uhr and was made in 1975.

space age is over

at least in hansaviertel, berlin. the ex-consistory of the protestant church of berlin is going to be demolished.  the quite interesting building from the late 60s  with the aluminum skin and appropriately rounded windows will not be renovated but replaced by some nice flats in a probably nice standard housing.

the consistory was designed by georg heinrichs and hans christian müller . it seems to be the only building in the hansaviertel that was build for administrative purposes at that time. due to it’s looks it is considered as belonging to “space age architecture” and though i don’t know anything about this, i really do like the term. and i like the building. and it’s here.

one viewpoint, two views

from here you can see this:

verlassene neubauten (with om zuiko 135mm@3.5)

and that:

gedanken (with om zuiko 50mm@1.8)

btw. google streetview has either removed “die gedanken sind frei” (they would, wouldn’t they?) or it’s simply too new information for them to know. what do you think?
