As a rapidly growing capital, Berlin is currently experienc-ing a further phase of intensive construction activity, accompanied by committed debates about the architectural future of the city. More than in any other European metropolis, subcultural creative spaces, ambitious large-scale construction projects and innovative residential buildings encounter each other in the immediate vicinity. Tradition and innovation mix to form an independent, dynamic and innovative building culture that is appreciated, respected and discussed internationally. Berlin architects are facing the complex challenges of bringing together this unparalleled diversity of people and architecture. The publication presents a carefully curated selection of the most exciting current projects in and from the German capital as a showcase for current architectural events. In addition, informative essays analyze and discuss backgrounds, trends and developments that affect (not only) Berlin.
