Man-Made Mountain Proposed in Berlin

An architect in Berlin has proposed replacing the city's now-unused Tempelhof airport with a giant man-made mountain, dubbed The Berg.

"To be known as The Berg, it would obliterate the historic, and former Tempelhof airport which has now closed, and become the biggest man-made mountain in the world.

The ‘wacky' German architect hopes the snow-covered slopes would create an ideal location for skiing, and has already received backing in the local media."

The 1,000 meter mountain would be the biggest man-made mountain in the world. ArchDaily offers a detailed look.
