Zoofenster, Berlin Charlottenburg

(ISO 100, f8 @ 22mm, 6sec., 01:31)

The structure in the center is called Zoofenster and at just under 119 m, it is one of Berlin’s tallest buildings. It was designed by Christoph Mäckler and opened in January 2013.

This is the view from the train station Zoologischer Garten.
That building dates back to 1882. Following the Second World War it became the only major station on the Stadtbahn to be located within West Berlin.
In Germany the station is notorious as the setting for the book Christiane F. – Wir Kinder vom Bahnhof Zoo, which chronicles the life of a teenager in the 1970s, who became involved with the drug and prostitution scene around the station.
