Old Building With New Head

Das ist die Börse Stuttgart. Mir fiel die markante Fassade, eine gelungene Mischung alter und neuer Architektur, auf. Ich bitte um Entschuldigung, dass der obige Teil abgeschnitten wurde. Aber besser gings nicht...
You see the building of the Stuttgart stock exchange. I noticed this striking frontage because of its successful mixture of old and new architecture. Sorry for the cut in the above part of the photo. I've done my very best ...

Schade das der obere Teil abgeschnitten wurde - dennoch geniales Bild und die Perspektive gefällt mir sehr (auch wenn das Copyright kaum lesbar ist und somit eigentlich unnötig zu sein scheint ;))

PS: Viel Spaß mit deinem Samsung Handy! Das Model hatte meine Freundin auch und macht einen ordentlichen Eindruck, es ist sicher kein Fehlkauf. Ich bin allerdings einfach nicht der Touchscree-Freund.

This is a wonderful combination of old and new which works well in this situation.

Im Grunde tuts jede beliebige Stehlampe die es bei Ikea und Co. gibt. Einfach Abends einschalten, sich neben der Lampe stellen und drauf losknipsen.

It gives it such a strange look.

That's very striking...almost bizarre. And at the top they have put fencing to keep away burglars and thieves?

Sorry, Steffen, this is a great photo but the building doesn't work for me...I think they should have continued with the old architecture.

THe glass top of the old building makes an interesting sight.

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my Theme Day post.

I sort of like it. It does make a nice mix of old and new.

It's strange, but I actually like it. And it looks like it has spikes on top of its head too.

Schönes Gebäude, da war ich noch gar nicht, seit die Börse dahin gezogen ist!

It is interesting to see the contrast of old and new like this. I'm not sure I care for it much but it is interesting. I started to say blending of old and new but they don't blend. The effect is somewhat jarring. But what do I know? In the US the old would have been torn down and replaced with all new. You have more respect for your history there.

Never seen that before - in Denmark "uplarged" buildings are not made that interesting.

Very interesting. They do this a lot in Sydney too but this is quite superb.
