Curtain Wall or Plattenbau?



Some people probably call this curtain wall, but to me this looks just like regular old Plattenbau technique. Nice to see that an appreciation of historical building methods is still alive and well in Berlin, busting the myth that prefabricated concrete slabs with punch-cut windows were reserved for former East Germany.
