Berlin stans for pulsating freedom on many levels, while managing to be excitingly chill. Ideas are turned into reality here, innovation is welcome, and courage is appreciated. And just like the city, the same can be said of its architecture: future-oriented and always somewhat nonconformist. It is almost self-evident that the architecture scene in the capital city attracts worldwide attention.
This volume presents an in-depth selection of the most exciting new projects: from unconventional pop-up architecture to large international projects and attractive and resident-friendly urban open spaces. The exhibition of works is supplemented by informative essays that illuminate current topics, backgrounds, trends and developments in the world of construction – not only in Berlin. How can affordable and yet high-quality residential space be created? How will demographic change influence life in the different neighbourhoods? And how can a city like Berlin continue to position itself architecturally as an art and culture metropolis?
