SCHINKEL_01

It’s been a long week of Mies, Mies, and yet more Mies.  So here’s a bit of a respite from the daunting Modernism his work exemplifies: Karl Friedrich Schinkel.  And yet, there’s something afoot – a link between Mies and Schinkel, which I am definitely not the first to make (see Kenneth Frampton and Thomas Beeby).  But whatever the reason, take a little solace in the capitals, pilasters, and peristyles – if only for the now.
