Berlin - Urban Architecture and Daily Life since 2009
The book takes the reader on an architectural discovery tour of Berlin. It gives an impressive insight into the latest architecture of the German capital: Distinctive buildings, urban spaces and places characterising urban everyday life in the city are presented in texts, photographs and plans. The scope includes shiny new constructions such as the Futurium or the Park am Gleisdreieck. The editors focus on major architectural and urban planning milestones of the past 13 years such as the construction of the Axel Springer building by OMA. Smaller discoveries such as the Grüne Haus by Simon + Brandt and hidden treasures such as the Wohnregal by FAR Frohn & Rojas in Wedding are also included.
