I'm at the control room in Chapter 6, but I have no idea how to continue. My first guess is to get across here:

So I made two portals: one high above me and one right below, so that I would get throw to the other side. But every try ends with a rather unpleasant encounter with the Aperture logo.

Any suggestions as to how to continue?

I thought that this was a duplicate of this question, they seemed so similar... xD – Tom Wijsman Apr 21 '11 at 22:35

First tip, you're not supposed to go to that exit yet. Take a look around and try something else. You'll know when you're supposed to go up there.

Another hint:

You should get to the top floor of the office building, you'll find something inside


Portal up to the platform like you did, and then put a portal on the sloped surface at the left of your second screenshot. Jump down from the platform and open a portal on the ground below you. This will catapult you to the upper floor of the office building

The next step after that:

Now the bridge should be extended and you should be able to jump down from the platform and use that momentum to get to the exit.

I actually tried catapulting myself onto the building, but it didn't work and I kept focusing on the wrong thing :( – Ivo Flipse Apr 21 '11 at 21:08
@IVo At least I hope you did find something in the wrong thing that made it less wrong. – badp Apr 21 '11 at 21:21

You must activate the elevator in the control room first. No double flinging is required.

Like so:

There is little-to-no double flinging required in this game. They took out most of the twitch-reflex type stuff. – Shinrai Apr 21 '11 at 21:23
@shinrai There's still some in the coop. – badp Apr 22 '11 at 0:41
badp - Right, but generally it's your partner flinging you while you're in the air so it's not so bad. :) – Shinrai Apr 22 '11 at 5:23
