This richly illustrated architecture guide introduces all new buildings that have been built since the opening of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Photographs of each building and square are completed with short background information about the location and its history. The new Berlin architecture does not only feature the work of renown architects such as Sir Norman Foster, Daniel Liebeskind, Helmut Jahn and Axel Schultes, but also reflects the efforts to bring history and presence in harmony. No other city has been as much the centre of modern architecture reflecting all developments of the last twenty years. This book is much more than a simple guide; it is the record of the most exciting city around the millennium.
