    BERLIN TRAIN STATION

    Berlin’s Hauptbahnhof is a large cathedral of glass and steel designed by Gerkan, Marg and Partners and is Europe’s largest and newest train station. Linking major lines from all directions, it has been on the boards for 11 years but, with typical German efficiency, was completed within two weeks of the 2006 World Cup games. Next week writer Jo Baker will explain why one could say the station had been in the planning stages for nearly a century. (Photo by Marcus Bredt.)

    CHICAGO LANDMARKS

    The Commission on Chicago Landmarks has honored 21 historic buildings with the Chicago Landmark Award for Preservation Excellence. Among these is the house at 4847 South Kimbark Avenue, in the Kenwood District, known for its large 19th-century houses designed by prominent architects. This 1890s Queen Anne was in considerable disrepair after many years of neglect. Next week we'll look at its rehabilitation and that of other Chicago landmarks.
