  SCHADOW'S HOUSE

I found this neglected but just under recounstruction house at the corner of Unter den Linden (No 10-11) and Schadowstraße very close to Branderburg Gate. Johann Gottfried Schadow, German Neoclassical Sculptor (1764-1850), creator of the Quadriga put on the Brandenburg Gate lived and worked there. There was commemorating table put on the building.

Maybe they should open Branderburg Gate museum there when they finish to renovate the building. It would be great location close to the Branderburg Gate and they could display some other than Quadriga works of Schadow, old and new pictures of the Gate, show movies and tell the story of the world's famous place and edifice. Bad idea? Just my dream :-).
What do you think?
