JANE FONDA IN BERLIN

JANE FONDA AT THE DISKOMAT

I came across Jane whilst strolling through some residential neighbourhoods in Berlin. She was everywhere – on mailboxes, street lamps, and abandoned buildings. As I’ve always had a thing for her, I couldn’t resist taking this photo.

Berlin has undergone a metamorphosis since I was last there, three months before The Wall came tumbling down.

Daniel Libeskind’s The Jewish Museum, Berlin, Peter Eisenman’s Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, Norman Foster’s amazing revamp of the Reichstag, Stephan Braunfels’ elegant German Parliament office building complex, Frank Gehry’s DZ Bank, and my favourite, the new Berlin Hauptbahnhof (Central Station) by von Gerkan, Marg und Partner.

So …

… if you like starchitecture, you’ll love the new Berlin. Some truly spectacular and amazing buildings have risen in the historical core of Germany.

But the best “find” was finding Jane everywhere I walked in the new Berlin.
