Walk IX: Rosa Luxembourg Platz

August 20, 2016 § 1 Comment

I love Art Deco.

Berlin is not known for its profuse Art Deco design, but  Rosa- Luxembourg- Platz is a curiously lovely little island for it, close to the architectural horror show that is Alexanderplatz.

How did it happen that this tiny area is suffused with this flavour? Did some people come to an agreement? Was the Art Deco cinema first, or the two apartment blocks with the Art Deco terraces?

Across the why, we have the Volksbühne (people’s stage). I’d like to be able to say this is another Art Deco job, but… it went another way. The word begins with ‘n’ and rhymes with ‘Yahtzee’.

That’s all I’ve got.
