    Building begann in 1972 and it got finished in 1976, but the planning began in 1966/67 with the architects being responsible for the 2 crossing tube stations underneath, the street and the highway bridge above it. The tower itself is anchored by the underground train stations. Here is an interesting interview with the surviving architect - unfortunately, it’s in German… https://www.moderne-regional.de/interview-ursulina-schueler-witte-zum-bierpinsel/ The initial setup was a nightclub, a bar and a restaurant. It was empty for some time after 2002 and got sprayed in 2009. The architects tried to prevent that from happening. Empty ever since and still not returned to the red coat…

    Since the “Bierpinsel” popped up in one of the shots from the books… stolen shots from the past with original paint… interior shots from one of the recent remodelling phases… the current plan is to revert back to the original paint & colour scheme.

    Not really, but it’s one of the fancier machines from that period - a Merrow. also called merrow stitch, shell stitch, shell overlock.

    while out in the neighbourhood I couldn't miss stopping by another architectural monster - Klinikum Steglitz (now Charite Campus Benjamin Franklin) opened in 1968. The entrance... on the way to the hospital... and the hospital...

    Sugar Cane Denim

    here, I stole a pic from the internet in order to illustrate traditional 2D pattern construction for mens pants: the front and back panels are constructed on top of each other - the side seams (inseams and outseams) are moved 1-2cm into the front panel - the back panel becomes bigger than the front panel - the rump construction for the back panel gets tilted - for the front panel it stays more less straight. points that determine the crotch: - by how much the inseam of the back panel gets moved out at the crotch point(not parallel) - where the crotch line sits (it can be lowered or raised - as required) - the angle the back panel rump gets tilted - the angle of the front panel centre front seam (fly front) gets tilted - how the crotch curves for the back and front panels are shaped there are quite a number of variables involved to determine the outcome - different construction systems, different pattern makers, different countries - not 2 models of jeans are alike...

    managed to get out to Steglitz today to catch up on the current state of Mäusebunker... designed by Gerd Hänska around 1965 to 1967, construction started in 1971. it was finished in 1981. part of the Charite Berlin it was a research centre for experimental medicine, but initially it the central lab for animal experiments. we used to demonstrate here in the early 80's. the building is currently empty and it was decided last year for it to be demolished. it status as an iconic brutalist building has triggered a public debate trying to secure, preserve and repurpose the building. https://www.greyscape.com/the-inspiring-fight-on-the-ground-to-save-berlins-at-risk-brutalism/ http://mäusebunker.de part of this debate is also the opposite building - Hygieneinstitut

    Funny that you say that - back in the early 80’s (way before I started my tailoring apprenticeship) we started with an art class project glueing plastic sheets and bags together to make art/fashion/garments and photographing them on the streets. From there I went on to real fabrics stapling them together before I finally tried my hands at my mom's sewing machine. What can I say - it was the 80’s, you were a punk, a popper, a waver or a new romantic - you wore it, it worked!
