fergalr:Damn! And apologies.
Yes Speer was not shy and retiring and Germania would have been a nightmare (not least for those millions on whose bones it would have been built), but there are some buildings surviving from that era which have presence and their own attraction. Come to think of it, some of our current 'developers' have (had) megalomaniac visions not far short of Speer.

The EUR in Rome is interesting. Mussolini was less doctrinaire about his architecture than Hitler.

Almost a year since it closed now.
Shame.
Not only was it an architectural classic as airports go, but it was very user friendly (probably as it was so quiet in recent years) and its location so close to the heart of one of Europe's major cities was enviable.
