Berlin Looking South - Go East

February 13, 2018

Sketch level is moving further east towards Alexanderplatz and the centre of former East Berlin, not the most historical neighbourhood nowadays (even though these are actually the oldest parts of the city), but the desire for a representative “socialist capital city centre” has swept away most of the few remnants of medieval history at the end of the 1960s.

 

 

The result is not the trendiest area today, but yet very appealing to draw with its heterogeneous mix of old and new, small and tall, broad thoroughfares the elegant curve of the train line viaduct and towering above all the iconic Berlin TV Tower. 

 

More work on areas in the foreground is done including the grand New Synagogue with its characteristic dome.
