BERLIN, GERMANY - JUNE 10: A model shows the main entrance way to the new Berliner Schloss city palace at the visitors' center near the construction site on June 10, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. In a ceremony to be held on June 12, German President Joachim Gauck will be among officials laying a foundation stone for the new structure. The Berliner Schloss was the residence of the Prussian Kaiser and was among the major architectural landmarks of Berlin until it was heavily damaged by Allied bombing in 1945. The communist authorities of East Berlin demolished the building in the 1950s, and today's Berlin government is pursuing an ambitious project to rebuild the palace according to a design by Italian architect Franco Stella, which will recreate the facade of the building but with a modern interior at a cost of approximately EUR 590 million.
