You’re more beautiful when you don’t pretend: on Berlin and its abandoned buildings

Besides historical and modern buildings, there is an incredible number of middle age buildings that remain in a state of abandon. This is another incredible thing that you can find in the city of Berlin, you have only to move your view to find some Berlin abandoned buildings.

Disused, roller coasters are submerged in overgrown weeds, dinosaurs sculptures lie fallen on the ground and a broken wheel looms over the landscape. Berlin offers many abandoned things: buildings may be falling down, vandalized and abused, but they maintain stoic dignity through the dust and decay. There is also a specific website dedicated to what is abandoned in Berlin and it’s called Abandoned Berlin.

But with On Berlin and its abandoned buildings, Pablo Arboleda offers a different perspective of the streets and the buildings of the city of Berlin.

If you like the art, the architecture or just the buildings, you can’t take a look at On Berlin and its Abandoned Buildings by Pablo Arboleda.

“A short walk through Berlin should be enough to comprehend that it is not a beautiful city – if we consider beauty in its classical sense. Anyone who visits Berlin expecting to see an outstanding historical centre and monuments everywhere will certainly feel something is missing after the mandatory tours of Museum Island and the Brandenburg Gate. The visitor will be surprised to realize that Alexanderplatz is not as picturesque as Piazza Navona, Friedrichstrasse is not that majestic if one compares it to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II, and the views from the bank of Spree River include factories and empty spaces, as opposed to how the Seine has shaped the riverside in Paris.”
