So far that has been the most interesting modern Library building I’ve seen. I was passing it every morning for two weeks on the way to my language course and I was always wondering what the 3 little “turbines” on each side are for. One day I went in to check it out, and can you believe it? They are three “single reading rooms”, where you can take your books, close the door behind you and have calm space to read. How cool was that idea of the architect?
Well, as an economist I obviously have to visit Canary Wharf once I’m in London. It’s the biggest European Financial District and offers work to about 90.000 people. If you want to complain about the Banking System in Europe, that’s the place to go 😉
This restaurant is right around the corner. Even though I don’t really eat fish, it always looks good from the outside, but I never got a nice shot of it. And then it snowed last week, a perfect opportunity I thought. It’s been a Sunday evening; the place was empty without customers possibly due to the heavy snowfall. Luckily they didn’t turn off the lights too early.
Ernst & Young in Berlin, place of my internship during my studies. It’s been hard times up there in the eighth floor, but also very good memories. And with a modern building right in the heart of Berlin it always reminds me of that time.
I wouldn’t have been able to take that picture if I and my girlfriend wouldn’t have been horribly lost. We ended up walking around for something like an hour, searching our way along the lake Wannsee in south-west Berlin. But as the saying goes, the trip is more valuable than the destination. And so we found this nice apartment. I mean I don’t know if I would like to live in it, but it’s an interesting piece of modern architecture.
