Rostock, Germany. Rostock was part of East Germany, a Communist country. The Germans of today's unified Germany do not think highly of those people of East GermanY. They believe them to be lazy. We, however, found them to be gracious and congenial. Rostock is clean and without graffiti, unlike many other eastern European cities.
A German architect has beaten off strong international competition to design Stockholm public library's new wing. Heike Hanada's ten-floor design was described by the jury as "a new, visible public building." The rendering was created by Armel Neouze, Jacques Gelez and Olivier Charles from the Architecture School of Paris Val de Seine. The project has been postponed #library #stockholm #design #sweden
