Architecture is what dominates the cityscape. While we don’t majorly focus on architecture as an art, we do respect the trade and obviously – the designed result.

Mall of Shame

Now I would've had a couple of ideas on how to make Potsdamer Platz less detached from "real life in Berlin", but apparently, every urban issue can be solved with a - you guessed it - ANOTHER MALL.

Raumverdichtungen #3

In continuation of the Raumverdichtungen seriesJan Herdlicka visited places you come across everyday. In his technical process the obvious dimensional characteristics blur out and only a fraction is left. With this he is questioning the process of memory and the character of the structures surrounding us.

Inside Tempelhof

Tempelhof is not just a park with a different story. It's quite a powerful symbol of modern Berlin. I was lucky to take part in a tour around the insides of the airport, discovering what the former American military base left inside the unused building. Let me tell you: it's as phenomenal from the inside as much as from the outside. Basketball courts and former bowling alleys, little forgotten bunkers and shelters-- had this building not been an airport, it would still be fascinating. I didn't even know the hallways were open to the public (I think you're obliged to book a tour though).

Raumverdichtungen Berlin #2

The Raumverdichtungen continue.  Jan Herdlicka follows his concept of “the essence of memory”. If you think of places you have been to, you wont be able to imagine every characteristic. Single details get lost and others become more dominant.  Some­how a new place emerges in your memory.
