    Just before my assignment to Berlin in February, friends of my co-worker were telling her, “Berlin is beautiful”. I was in Berlin in 1994 and “beautiful” was the last way I would describe Berlin. The buildings in present day Berlin are soafened by light and abstract design, that is it. Berlin is “STRONG” and Germanic in appearance, masculine in weight. On the other hand Italy is feminine and soft. Louis Sullivan did indeed combine both elements of design, masculine, feminine in his work. Louis Sullivan is one of my favorite architects, Richard Meier comes in second, Federal Court House, Central Islip, LI,NY and the Getty Center, Los Angeles, Ca. This book is on my must buy list. best, joan
