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 Trump International Hotel and Tower is a skyscraper condo-hotel in downtown Chicago, Illinois.

The building, called for businessman and later U.S. president Donald Trump, was designed by architect Adrian Smith of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill. Bovis Lend Lease constructed the 98-story structure, which reaches a height of 1,388 ft (423.2 m) including its spire, its roof topping out at 1,171 ft (357 m). It's next to the main branch of the Chicago River, with a view of the entrance to Lake Michigan past a series of bridges across the river. The building received publicity once the winner of the first season of The Apprentice reality television show, Bill Rancic, chose to handle the construction of the tower over handling a new Trump National Golf Course and resort in Los Angeles. Trump announced in 2001 that the skyscraper would become the tallest building in the world, but following the September 11 attacks that same year, the architects scaled back the building's plans, and its design underwent several revisions. When topped out in 2009, it turned into the second-tallest construction in the U.S.. It surpassed the city's John Hancock Center as the construction with the maximum residence (apartment or condominium ) in the world, and held this title until the conclusion of the Burj Khalifa. The design of the building includes, from the bottom up, retail space, a parking garage, a hotel and condominiums. The 339-room hotel opened for business with limited accommodations and services on January 30, 2008, then full lodging and services on April 28. The construction topped out in late 2008 and construction was finished in 2009. Sixteen was one of five restaurants in Chicago with a Michelin Guide two-star evaluation in 2016 and one of three five-star Forbes-rated restaurants in town until it closed in 2018. The spa is one of six with a four-star Forbes score in the Chicago area in 2015.
