The Sony Center is situated at Potsdamer Platz in Berlin (district Mitte) and is a big complex containing seven buildings.

It was designed by architect Helmut Jahn and the construction time lasts four years. In January 2000 the Entertainment area was opened and some month later the complete area.
On top of the building there is the 103m high Bahntower which can be seen from far away.

The Sony Center houses office spaces, living spaces, a movie house, an entertainment center, also spaces for retail trade and gastronomy on about 132500m². It is a big highlight to go there at night for a drink because the roof construction of the vast “patio” is a masterpiece!

Also the ambiance is very special there, everything is lighted but in a discreet way. It’s a really worth-seeing building in Berlin!

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
