February 3 would have been Hermann Henselmann’s 110th birthday. The head architect behind Strausberger Platz, Karl-Marx-Allee and Berlin’s TV Tower would have been a star in another time and place. Now it is up to us to honor his work.

Have you always wanted to move to Berlin – the colorful, trend-setting capital that is home to the most start-ups and the liveliest cultural scenes? Then grab your pen (or hit your keyboard) and tell us exactly why you would like to live at Strausberger Platz , and what you would like to report on there as a blogger.
