Berg 1

Of course, this looks like pure science fiction, but it’s really not. “The Berg” is Jakob Tigges’ proposal for what should take the place of the now-closed Templehof Airport. At 1,000 meters tall, this mountain would act as a natural habitat for animals, a ski-resort and (understandably) a tourist attraction. What’s more, the local residents are actually in support. It may be totally insane, but there’s a small part of us that really wants to see this…
