Postcard from Germany - Herzog & de Meuron’s Elbphilharmonie

Dear Dialect Folks and Dialect Friends, today, as promised, I checked on the construction site of Herzog and de Meuron’s Elbphilharmonie here in Hamburg. I'll share all the details when I return. But for now have a quick look at these first impressions. And just so you know, their punch list accounts for over 6,800 items. Just saying. I'll make sure they'll pick up the pace. This thing is some 700 million over budget and a few years past it's finish date nobody knows the details. All that rust-red steel by the by is temporary scaffolding. Gotta love it. See you soon. Did I turn off the iron? (Can't remember) XOXO, Toby

Postcard from Germany - Traveling by Rail

Dear Dialect Folks and Dialect Friends. The weather here in good old Germany is lovely and the pigeons pesky. So that you don't miss our daily bare-knuckle design sessions on all things architectural modern - here now a few impressions of my travels by rail. Handrail that is. All relatively new. Maybe they will inspire some fresh ideas. Don't forget to water the plants.
See you soon., kisses - Toby
