Franzosischer Dom 1944. I had to incl this pic of the Gendarmenmarkt in rubble. King Freidrich I had a liking for architecturally eccentric tower/dome fusions. The French and German churches of the Gendarmenmarkt had them, Charlottenburg palace, and the Mint Tower, which collapsed. Later, the chapel over the west gate of the Stadtschloss took this form, and the twentieth century Berlin Stadthaus tower took it to an extreme. So far as I know, they are unique to Berlin. Jeff
