Austria presents design turning Hitler’s birthplace into police station

VIENNA (Reuters) – Austria presented an architectural plan on Tuesday to turn the house where Adolf Hitler was born into a police station in the hope of “neutralising” the space and ensuring it does not attract neo-Nazis.

After decades of debate about what to do with the building in the town of Braunau am Inn on the German border, Austria carried out a compulsory purchase in 2017 and said last year it would be turned into police offices so that it “will never again evoke the memory of National Socialism”.

“It is the most appropriate use (for the building). Why? The police are the protector of fundamental rights and freedoms,” Interior Minister Karl Nehammer told a news conference announcing the winning design by architects’ firm Marte.Marte.

Hyundai Santa Fe Gets Radical Makeover From Carlex Design

Well, it certainly isn’t bland…

While we’re waiting for Hyundai to give the Santa Fe a facelift, the Polish aftermarket specialists at Carlex Design decided to give the midsize SUV a facelift of their own.

Dubbed the Santa Fe Urban Edition, this striking custom project has a two-tone finish and a big mouth akin to a Lexus LX. At the back, a faux diffuser is flanked by quad exhaust

  • Its color and trim selection benefits from an extensive study of Porsche model history.
  • The new model is priced at $181,950—more than $45,400 above the regular Targa 4S’s price—and will go on sale late this summer.

    Everyone knows the guy that shows up at a classic-car meet wearing a tweed jacket with sleeve guards and a tartan cap. Now there’s an equally nostalgic, brand-new car for this person: Meet the Porsche 911 Targa 4S Heritage Design Edition. The cumbersome name encompasses what this car is about: a limited-edition derivative of the new 911 Targa 4S with design that is informed by the brand’s heritage. In this case, it’s the 1950s and early 1960s.

    Porsche’s design department clearly had fun with this model, reaching deep into the brand’s endless reservoir of badges
