Architecture from and in Berlin has always been a reflec - tion of the current global building sector and a trend indi - cator at the same time. Whether residential construction, landscape design, or traffic planning – the concepts devel - oped in the German capital are internationally renowned. As every year, Building Berlin once again presents the most interesting projects of the past year.

Thematic essays that add a reflective dimension to the representative examples complement the presentation of the roughly 65 projects across eight chapters. This year, the volume focuses on the mega-theme of densification. The range of solutions for making a city more compact ex - tend from closing gaps on small corner lots, via new build - ings that utilize inner courtyard spaces or mini-houses for urban nomads, to temporary commercial architecture and the expansion of universities under the ground.
