Informations

The Berlin Cathedral (German: Berliner Dom) is a Protestant church and dynastic tomb on the Museum Island in Berlin.

Built from 1894 to 1905 by order of German Emperor William II according to plans from Julius Raschdorff in Renaissance and Baroque Revival styles, the listed building is the largest Protestant church in Germany and one of the main dynastic tombs in Europe. In addition to church services, the cathedral is utilized for state ceremonies, concerts and other occasions. Since the demolition of the Memorial Church (Denkmalskirche) on the north side by the East German government in 1975, the Berlin Cathedral has consisted of the large Sermon Church (Predigtkirche) in the center, the smaller Baptismal and Matrimonial Church (Tauf- und Traukirche) on the south side and the Hohenzollern crypt (Hohenzollerngruft), which covers almost the entire basement. Damaged during the Allied bombing in World War II, the cathedral's original interior was restored by 2002. Currently there is discussion about restoring the historic exterior too.

Informations

The Prime Tower, also called'Maag-Tower' in a previous stage of preparation, is a skyscraper in Zurich, Switzerland. At a height of 126 metres (413 feet ), it was the highest skyscraper in Switzerland from 2011 until 2015, when the Roche Tower at Basel (standing at 178 metres (584 feet )) was finished. The building is situated near the Hardbrücke railway station. The tower replaces an industrial facility that's been demolished. According to its developers, the tower's construction, which took 15 years to plan and execute, was a financial success, with its valuation based on rental rates exceeding the building cost by CHF 110 million.The tower and its two companion buildings, Cubus and Diagonal, are used primarily as office buildings. Due to its opening in December 2011, the tower hosts the'Clouds' restaurant on its top floor, a conference center, the Hotel Rivington & Sons on the ground floor, in addition to the offices of Deutsche Bank Schweiz, Homburger AG, Transammonia, Korn/Ferry International, Citibank Switzerland, Infosys, Repower AG, Ernst & Young, Zürcher Kantonalbank and consulting firms.
