The Tree House
This house and garden was built by Turkish immigrant, Osman Kalin, who simply wanted to grow his vegetables for himself and his community. The piece of land was unused by East Berlin after the building of the Wall. He built the house little by little using left-over construction materials. When Berlin reunited, the authorities wanted to build a road where his garden and house stood.The church and the community stood by Kalin, and the house was saved.
He still lives in the area and can be seen from time to time sitting out front of his house.
