@Japanalia: This is a new building! And it's another costly white elephant (besides the new airport and the city castle). I have only taken that shot, if it's depressing, than because that whole complex and the instution residing there is. As I've said: architecture of fear.
opressive abstract (if there's such a thing) in keeping with the building and use?

@Ted: This is a giant complex, and another one of Berlin's financial disasters. When we were passing by in December, it seemed to watch us. An ugly and mean building, you could feel it!
A modern fortress.

@franz: Noch so ein Berliner Milliardengrab.
Do you have any idea how the word Gestapo relates? I looked through your portfolio, you have such a brilliant style that I see here. This is perfectly done with fantastic lines and the geometry is amazing. I like this a lot !

@Abena: Thanks, Abena! While the Gestapo was an institution of suppression and violence, this building is telling something different to me. It's the soulless anonymity of power, detached from any value system and democratic rules. Really creepy.
A great graphic composition captured here! Kinda reminds me of the windows from my cell, er office. :-)

@Steven: Deepest regrets! I've always hoped this kind of loophole architecture would fade out slowly, but unfortunately it doesn't!
