— On landscape architecture and related
Tuesday, January 20, 2009
closed last October, and since then Berlin has wondered what to do with it. Architect Jakob Tigges has suggested building a “euphoric”
, which would be partly ringed by the iconic Nazi terminal building. The proposal is not a serious idea, admits Tigges; rather, it's a provocation to use the site for something other than mediocre apartment buildings. Still, it would be a most unusual urban park, where instead of on an airplane, you ascend on foot. Image by Jakob Tigges and Malte Kloes.)

Hello! jaja, why not to build an airport jaja, it seems to me a great idea!! I´m just joking but sometimes a big thing is needed to improve things... of course it is a bit crazy but... it is truly better than "champiñones" (what means "mushrooms" and it´s the way like in Spain we call that horrible buildings in the costa, a great amount of ugly buildings looking the same).

If you don´t mind I´m going to post this article in my blog, in Spanish to see what do my collegues think about it.

An airport? How James Bondian.
Anyway, it would absolutely make a great urban park. San Francisco's hills are green (with envy).

Just noticed that the URL posted above by S'Mat was messing up the blog's layout, so I've deleted the comment and replicated the entire comment below, with the said link reformated and made clickable.
how about a section of the mountain dedicated to aero-people?
Thanks for the link, S'Mat!

great idea. did you consider how much water it will produce (rain snow etc) it will fill up the suggested sea/lake easily

oh well, it's now a park (popular among kite flyers)
