Local blogs for local people.


Don’t have much time these days to wander the labyrinth of the internet in anything like a relaxed manner, but when I do, I find myself thinking (with blogging in particular) that the more focused and specific it becomes, the better it gets. 

Thus I’ve been drawn to Grossbeerenstrasse (which is geographically down the road from me) as well as its wantonly local links list.  Enjoy, if you’re from round these parts.

Realstadt Berlin.


Some (rather belated) snaps from the previously mentioned Realstadt exhibition at Kraftwerk Mitte.  Runs until 28th November, and definitely worth seeing, despite the inexplicably poor tagline in the English version.  ‘Wünsche als Wirklichkeit‘ sounds much better to my partially trained ear.

Meet-up, Wednesday 6th October


Autumn has arrived, darkness falls ever earlier, so what better response than to hang out in a bar and discuss all things architectural over a beer or two?  It will be this wednesday evening from 8pm, at Fuchsbau, a bar just on the south side of the Landwehrkanal at Kottbusser Brücke.  Nearest U-Bahn is Schönleinstraße on the U8:
I’ve reserved the back room, which should be good, but bring your own soft cushions if you’re not comfortable on low level built-in timber furniture.
As always, it’s an open event to chat and meet like-minded people, all welcome.  Generally in english with occasional outbreaks of deutsch.
