A LETTER TO NATHANAËL
LETTER TO NATHANAËL
letter to the poet Nathanaël published in Shaan Syed's The Andrew Project | 2013
I was looking up at the covered subway station that hovered a few storeys above street level, and its architecture - basic, only vaguely ornamental - reminded me of the old Storkowerstraße bridge, a structure that once symbolized everything that this city meant to me, all of the city's thrill and possibility, all of its haunting.
The correspondent reflects on the changing psychic and architectural landscape of contemporary Berlin.
