Upside Down and Inside Out
Right in the heart of Berlin at Postdamer Platz's Sony Center
you can find a real life section cut through a preserved Berlinese interior.
Channeling the essence of Gordon Matta-Clark, this inverted interior offers
an array of intricate design details including this impressively ornate
mirror and wall relief.
While what makes this slice through the past so compelling and disorienting
has a fair amount to do with its juxtaposition against its more contemporary
architectural neighbors, the most effective aspect of this peculiar
preservation move is the fact that you can be outside and inside
So in honor of this wonderfully inverted architectural specimen,
let's all take a minute to enjoy Diana Ross singing "Upside Down"
with Michael Jackson at the LA Forum.
