Berlin

I have just arrived in Berlin, the first time I have been since the opening of the Neues Museum, which we have come to study in preparation for the opening of Burlington Gardens, another Chipperfield project which shares many of the same characteristics as the Neues Museum:  a grand, mid-nineteenth-, century, neoclassical building full of academic and cultural pomp, needing to be brought into active public use in the twenty first century.   I love the atmosphere of Berlin, staying on the Torstrasse in what was the old east Berlin.
