This profile of Berlin features a photographic essay chronicling the dramatic changes that the city has undergone recently, as well as giving an historical perspective and including highlights from the symposium 'Berlin, City of Competitions' held at the Royal Academy of Arts in 1994. The unique challenge that faces the redevelopment in Berlin, with the bridging of the gap left by the demolition of the wall, is reviewed, and the book discussed built projects and building schemes by Berlin based architects such as JP Kleihues, Axel Schultes and Christoph Langhof as well as those by a number of international architects.
