Modern Houseboat in Berlin, Berlin, Germany. Das Stue. Ellington Hotel Home. Destination Modernism. Berlin’s architectural spaces are as divided as its history as we see modernist movements in all their shades wind across this cultural hub of diversity and perpetual cool like a giant chameleon.
I have travelled many times from the elegant Art Nouveau courtyards of Hackescher Markt in the hip Mitte district to West Berlin’s Bauhaus and into East Berlin where the Communist backlash against Bauhaus modernity is frozen in time for all to see. I always find architectural details that stop me in my tracks.
