Look at how Potsdamer Platz looked in the 1920s and then look at the slick, soulless way it looks now. It is so sad. ‘No other city square in the world has undergone as many transformations as Potsdamer Platz; from a lush green to the pulsing heart of a vibrant city, from the height of luxury to a field of rubble, from a no-man’s land to the new centre of Berlin. Nowhere else have joy and sorrow been so closely intertwined.’ It is incredible, my hands are still shaking.
