Dieselpunk Radio (“Radio Kootwijk”)

The Netherlands are a tiny, yet densly populated country. However, there are also some remote places. One is the so-called “Veluwe” area in the East of the country. It was there, in the midst of nothing more than woods, heather and strange in-land sand dunes, close to the town of Apeldoorn, that in 1918 the construction of a massive structure was started, the so-called “Radio Kootwijk”.An illustration by Dutch artist Joost Veerkamp on …See More

Dieselpunk Banking

21st century online banking may have its advantages. But doing your transactions from the lazy couch with an iPad on your knees can of course not replace the stylish atmosphere of a proper bank building. Especially if it is the Postal Savings Bank in Vienna by Otto Wagner with its Dieselpunk features (have a look on those heating pipe exhausts).Otto Wagner’s Postal Savings Bank is one of the earliest buildings marking the move away from Art Nouveau and Neoclassicism. It was opened in December…See More

The “Elbtunnel” in Hamburg

100 years ago, in September 1911, the city of Hamburg (Germany) opened a 426 meter long tunnel underneath the river Elbe. The tunnel is still in use today. It’s special feature is that there are no ramps leading into it, but vertical shafts with lifts. This creates a very special feeling of “no light at the end of the tunnel".The tunnel took six years to design and four years to build. It costed 10 million Goldmark. In 1923, the record year, the Elbtunnel was used by 19 million pedestrians. …See More
