German architect Jakob Tigges has envisioned a bold new landmark on the Berlin skyline.  His dream work is a 1,000 meter tall man-made mountain called “The Berg”, which he hopes will be a tourist destination the likes of which Berlin has never seen.

The goal is to create a natural habitat for local wildlife, even some that aren’t natural to the area, as well as a recreation/skiing spot for those visiting the city.

It would take place of the now defunct Tempelhof Airport, a space whose function is currently up for discussion.  Surprisingly, there is a movement behind The Berg in Berlin, and people are pushing to get it approved and financed.
