Berlin Niederkirchnerstrasse. The Martin-Gropius-Bau is one of my favourite buildings in Berlin, but doing a comparison shot from 1990 to 2018 is difficult because the trees now largely block the view, even in winter. I went to Berlin this year in mid-March specifically to get architectural shots with the trees bare, and I was pleased with some of the results. Not here though.

The DDR Palast der Republik lives again in the form of a gigantic enlargement of a photograph taken in the foyer area which displayed officially commissioned artworks. These artworks are now on display at the Barberini Museum in Potsdam until May 2018.
