Architecture Du Jour: Berlin Details

A grab-bag of beautiful details from no-name buildings in Berlin:

berlin_detailsWhen was the last time you ooh’d and aah’d over the details on a modernist building? Would modernists have us think that details and ornaments are unimportant? Yet they’re a big part of what transforms walking through a city, town or neighborhood into a pleasure rather than a chore.

    I visited Prague for Christmas 2012, and I enjoyed all the Art Nouveau buildings, with their lovely little details, bright colours, etc. Prague was never bombed in the war, and so retains a wide variety of architectural styles; from medieval to Soviet-era horrors; quite an interesting place.
