Today, building culture means also resource-saving conversion culture. Reconsidering buildings and neighbourhoods that are worth preserving, using them better, converting and extending them cleverly, is both a tradition and a trend in Berlin: a trend with a great future, as the 60 exciting projects conceived in Berlin demonstrate. They include smart transformations of cottages, barns and GDR-bungalows into highly contemporary housing, a factory made of shipping-containers, circular interior fittings for the Impact Hub Berlin, and eye-catching new mobility projects such. In between, renowned authors investigate thematically relevant topics to inspire the architectural discourse.
