world pictures Germany: Three by Balthasar Neumann

How could Germany during its postwar economic miracle have produced landscapes like this? It's better than rubble, but the Germans themselves knew that buildings should do more than keep you warm and dry. Walter Scheel, West Germany's president in 1975, put it this way: "Our cities and villages are in danger of becoming faceless and without history. They threaten to become inorganic, uglier, and more impersonal." (Quoted in Joshua Hagen, Preservation, Tourism and Nationalism: The Jewel of the German Past, 2006, p. 269).
