Berlin, Germany, Quartier Schützenstrasse
A few meters from where the Berlin Wall once stood lies the Quartier Schützenstrasse. Designed by architect Aldo Rossi, the project was intended to re-utilize what the war had turned into a wasteland.
The quartier has dozens of distinct, and colorful facades—despite being built in one fell swoop—and houses both residential and commercial properties. One of its most distinct features, typical of almost all Berlin residences, is the enclosed courtyards that provide city dwellers with easy access to an outdoor space.
