Don’t tell him, Pike!*


Sometimes I stumble upon things that I find hard to believe. How about this one? I came across the obituary of Günter Behnisch, in Germany a respected, well-known architect who died in 2010. His obituary describes him as the man who gave post-war Germany a new face. Look at the tower in the photo above, and then at the black and white pic. Notice anything? The tower on the architect’s model? The gun platform on the u-boat? A new face? Really?


The more I Googled, the better it got. Coincidence? I don’t think so. If you are unconvinced, here are more:


Still unconvinced? Would help if I told you that before he became an architect, Günter Behnisch was a U-boat commander in WWII?

Herr Behnisch, it seems, had a wonderful sense of humour.
