Monday, October 22 - Tour of Berlin

We began the day with a lecture in the hotel by Tom Abbot, Architecture as a Means of Understanding Berlin. "Berlin is a city of architectural innovation. Here everything form the Baroque to the postmodern is presented side-by-side creating an amazing mix of architectural styles." As always with Tom, it was excellent.

Following lunch at Restaurant Diekman across the street we went on a bus tour of Berlin under Tom's direction. We saw a little of everything, as evidenced by the pictures. While at the Brandenburg Gate we went to Frank Gehry's DG Bank building to see a remarkable sculpture in its courtyard. We finished up at Schloss Chalottenberg and then back to the hotel. Another independent dinner, due, presumably, to the deteriorated dollar, and we complied by eating lightly. That evening there was an excellent lecture by Monica Scheele Knight of IST on "Berlin Past and Present: The Rise and Fall of the Berlin Wall."
