Reviews - What do customers think about Berlin : Capital City?

Great architectural guide to government offices in Berlin!  Mar 15, 2001
This book is a great entry into the changing face of Berlin! Packed with text and photographs, Berlin: Capital City takes you on a journey of the new and exciting architecture that is sprouting up all over Berlin.

Full of photographs, text, street addresses, metro directions, and architects, Capital City provides an indepth coverage of the government buildings springing up in Germany's capital.

Following the unification of Germany and the relocation of the capital to Berlin, a whole new architectural scheme had to be developed. Following many urban planning and architectural competitions, the top architects of the world are represented here.

Meyer provides a great, indepth coverage of the Berlin of the future, however, does not touch on the Berlin of the past. The US, French, and British embassies have all returned to their pre-World War II locations on Pariser Platz. As well, many many other countries are rebuilding there embassies in Berlin, there is a whole new government quarter being built, and the future of these locations is illustrated here to perfection.

Where Meyer faults, is in his complete lack of any historical reference. It would be nice to see how the US, French, and British embassies where in the past, so we can relate their past designs to their present ones.

It would have been nice to compare where Berlin was to where it is going.

I highly recommend this book because it takes you on an exciting journey into some of the best post-modern architecture in the world. For that alone, it is worth it.
