    Abstract

    Twenty years after unification, Berlin now boasts sleek corporate buildings (Figure 1), regional transportation nodes, a federal government district, a renovating historic district, gentrified inner city neighborhoods, trendy galleries, and a centralized memory district (Till, 2005). Advertising campaigns promoting the city have used tours, viewing platforms, and “wrapped” building sites with plastic façades to depict the city to come. City marketing and tourism strategies have been successful in making the “new” city a spectacle, even after the boom of post-unification construction.
