The city of Nuremburg has cancelled plans for a $200 million concert hall, at least for the next few years.

 Because of the Corona crisis, the city can no longer aford it said Mayor Marcus König. 



  • We privatize your value says:

    Never mind, this building’s twin in Haguenau, France, is almost complete now. Not kidding, both buildings look so much alike that you could think they were designed by the same team:

  • Gus says:

    The London concert hall should be cancelled for the same reason, not needed anymore. HS2 is another costly white elephant.

  • Marge O. says:

    at 42%+ average income tax rates, they cannot “afford” it?

  • John Borstlap says:

    The square Bauhaus block demonstrates the bottomless poverty of aesthetic invention and craft of this imitation of fifties postwar progressiveness.

    It’s again an example of the ‘Selbstverkistung der Menschheit’.

    The people who design such idiocies should be forced to psychiatric therapy, together with the people who commissioned them.

  • Nik says:

    As pointed out on other occasions… Nürnberg or Nuremberg are correct. There is no Nuremburg.

  • Nürnberger says:

    How stupid. The city really needs one, and the Corona hiatus offers the perfect time to move forward.
