Hear me roar!

Mosaic on the side of the fabulous Alfred Brehm Haus, an early 60s architectural marvel located in the Tierpark, East Berlin’s (better) answer to the Zoologischer Garten. Sadly, an old GDR building sitting untouched in the middle of a tourist attraction was too much for the city council to bear, and the Haus is set for renovation soon. Which will no doubt turn it from the architectural equivalent of a fine vintage into a horrid, cheap bottle of Liebfraumilch that no-one wants to drink. Except by people who don’t know any better. Prost!
