As oil prices fluctuate, it seems clear that sustainable architecture and design will be essential in the very near future. With a plethora of social, economic and environmental challenges, we consistently hear that there are no simple solutions or clear answers. Updating Germany: 100 Projects for a Better Futurenonetheless finds some hope through 100 architectural, artistic and design projects currently in development in Germany, which open up new possibilities for blending high-tech with low-tech, using innovative building technologies and allowing for the possibility of an ecologically and socially responsible way of life in the seemingly inevitable post-fossil-fuel world. This volume accompanies the German exhibition at the 11th International Architectural Biennial in Venice, which was curated by Friedrich von Borries and Matthias Bottger, both born in 1974, who founded the Berlin-based architectural firm raumtaktik in 2003.
