Berlin Architectural Association’s yearbook appears in Verlagshaus Braun for the fifth time. In a tried-and-true fashion, this publication combines a richly illustrated documentation of the projects presented in the context of the "da! Architektur in und aus Berlin 2008" (da! Architecture in or from Berlin) exhibition with critical reflections on current architectural projects. The chronicle also looks back at the year 2007 in architecture.
Ten known Berlin architecture personalities, including the current mayor Klaus Wowereit and the President of the Academy Klaus Staeck, share their favorite projects from the 10 years of “da!.” Essays by renowned critics cast a glance on spectacular new library buildings, sound the chances and risks posed by public participation in siting of public parks and bring the discussion taking place surrounding the city's water sources into the larger context.
