basically shelved quantities then found the road got the berlin commission and adopted the plans to the new project after had it in of a model for in that. construction began soon after in one thousand nine hundred five. by now an old man traveled from the united states to berlin to celebrate the laying of the first stone the project was close to his heart. through. i dedicate this to the lights of the people the goods and services of the arts and the mines. installing the gigantic one thousand two hundred ton steel roof posed a major challenge it had to be lifted very slowly misconduct or watched carefully from his car. recalls the moment. the grandson were in the car before they drove on the need the roof got outs and surely relished watching this

today i see some pictures on the wall is it a gallery space. yes it's mainly used to exhibit modern art buildings like this by muse funder or are grand and create spaces where so much can happen here it can be transformed with each exhibition. moment and also known for. and we deliberately look for people who fit the building and match muse unique style. but right now we have works by sebastiaan on display he's a photo and video artist. and as you can see his works take a humorous approach to furniture designed by me. this is wonderful and quite about this of course this property is shaped like
a square of means have this house built on the northeastern edge of the square in order to have a large garden. as well you can see that neighboring houses were built in the middle of their respective property as part of. the flats is another example of his special talent for cleverly arranging buildings on a plot of those and then boyd of them going to. a country house with you. yard in the middle of berlin not bad. i don't know about you but i just can't get enough of this green that's why we're hopping on over to ireland the emerald isle and this week's nina local our viewer john kennedy is taking us on a tour of its hometown court. fights ago called kick welcome to cork as we say in the gaelic language i'm john kennedy i want to welcome you to cork ireland's real capital city.
cork it's got an amazing up the spirits a young city student city great pumps friendly people on the banks of the beautiful river leaf. so this is one of vikings from the city here the river leap now over a thousand years ago this eerily was a marsh containing many small islands and that's why the vikings from the city because from here they could trade and raid with the interior and cork the name comes from gaelic. meaning marsh or swamp. not a thing the special court is court has got twenty nine bridges on the river the dr has only got twenty four so that makes all those the venice of part of the. sentence church was built in the eighteenth century built on the site of
a much older medieval church not only is it a beautiful church to visits but it's still an active church a sunday service is held here every week and the best thing about sentences. you get to ring the bells. you choose the song was played by all the numbers and just listen to the song. here in st downs not only can we get to ring the famous bells we also have a terrific view of cork city. so this is where we get the show your courts english market famous for its locally produced and imported organic produce but it's much more than that i come here to buy my fresh fruit and vege however i also come here for the chance to catch up on
the gossip. so that english market dates back to the eighteenth century it's called the english market because back then the only ones allowed to own stalls and there were the protestants were known as the english and the name of the english market. was you know if you're very busy today every dark know it's a silver lining in every survey lining as dark clothes move so what's the best thing about the english market it's the sights and sounds it's the smells you can smell you can sense where the food comes from it's like having the whole world right here in cork. you. saw the finished in cork what else but in the pub this is where you meet genuine core people. and i can assure you when you're in the public cork you always have
a point to beamish and you're never alone so. bauhaus architect and contemporary innovators built a number of housing projects in berlin known as the berlin modernism housing estates these subsidized homes are unesco world heritage site one example is the who are horseshoe estate what is the essence of this estate it's got the motto back then was lights air and sun for all fast. the idea was to get people out of their crimes tenements out of their dark backyards and build spacious estates close to nature that's what happened here. we are standing in front of the horseshoe estate include it's like the realization of that idea. because if new residents were welcomed with open arms or welcome this is the home of the new man and there is fresh air and social encounters are part of the package. going out of
the clink and there seem to be lots of parallels to the bauhaus movement here is that it really became a scene is well. under this is usually sort of the one nine hundred twenty seven guard was well connected enough to pursue the same idea is. strictly speaking it's not about a house architect you know they're taught or studied they're pretty pleased he wrote on housing if you would like a while to gropius he was a main figure in the german association of craftsman and the architectural collective. but he also realized there's own ideas here. because it's not. and can you give me an example. it was i don't know it's how it's job to create housing for the masses so the idea was to build affordable worker homes so they created standardized houses. on hot potato it was a master at using small variations in extravagant colors to break up any monotony
and as extravagant top people. know to me of called. modern architecture helped chamberlain as we know it today if you want to see another original battle house construction you should consider a trip to neighboring brandon book and we're now about an hour's drive from here in the bauhaus second director one of my undesigned a trade union school alongside other powers buildings environment and death row it's considered a unesco world heritage site. in the late one nine hundred twenty s. . the second bounce house director and his colleague. set out to design a trade union school that would provide an ideal setting for learning. today almost
one hundred years after its completion the impressive building still fascinates visitors young and old. that my head like this group of students i have ever. know if you work hard we're here today to gather inspiration for videos and familiarize ourselves with about how stuff called my. name. one typical bauhaus aspect here is that this complex was focused on the role architecture could play in facilitating learning all rooms were built with the outdoors in mind. concerns with some tell us something about this boathouse more of this water and i think it's once you about what you did so ask i don't think i mean it was the i was built in one thousand twenty eight and its prime purpose was to convey education
that was done quite effectively because teachers and students alike felt a sense of freedom thanks to its beautiful natural surroundings on the space and nice rooms are provided as if cry of oil or. the building complex was meant to encourage communal learning and living. the school is full of incredible features that you often only notice at second glance. the fitness card actually did two hundred now next to the gym. it has a really nice feature the windows slight open so in the summer they can be fully opened first and that way the gym feels like it's outdoors even i was actually inside. yeah. when your baby gets when you look around you can see clear materials you know paintings or ornaments just pure functionality
so no food no need to. understand could you picture going to school here. on your. yes the memorial is situated nicely for now is nearby where you could go shopping at locations nice you have many options for spending your leisure time i could picture going to school here. today true to the bauhaus spirit the chamber of crafts uses the building for vocational training. i'm still at the horseshoe estate in berlin just like me you're probably wondering what these houses look like on the inside still shows me one of them. it's been restored to the original nineteen twenties design today you can rent it as a vacation home there. this
is typical furnishing from the weimar republic era. by now that has a few modern touches like the slump or some of the earliest tubular steel furniture produced and death so busy. time now for one of your travel videos this week making a few now that he shared his journey through come up with us he started in the capital phnom penh headed to the coast and then man as a way to coach anxiety the so-called rabbit island oddly enough you won't find many rahman's there but you will catch and beautiful sunset.
