Quite surprised by the variety of countries the Ip members came from I arrived at Alexanderplatz. After a short time of smiling at eachother we became curious and got to now each other. It was easy to find a topic to discuss in this contrasting city which is quickly developing new urban concepts in modern architecture. On of the most impressive buildings which is being removed since 2006 was the Palast der Republik (palace of the republic) that only consist of a few concrete walls and t-bars.

When we arrived at Gendarmenmarkt which is typical for its classical architecture I spent too much time for taking photos that I didn´t see where the group was going. So I lost the contact to the group and couldn´t follow them. On this way I have to say thanks to all who visited Berlin together with me so far on that beautiful saturday . Best of luck to all of you. May there be more precious moments to share ideas and pleasure.

Greetings from Berlin!
