Over the past century, Berlin has undergone countless transformations. Rapid growth, destruction, survival, and finally a halting revival as a twin city reunited once more. This last phase has been characterised by stagnation and even shrinkage, which in turn strengthened Berlin’s unusual configuration as a polycentric settlement with no clear core. This atlas of the special, strange, or undiscovered phenomena of the German capital is structured in eighteen chapters and offers a fascinating insider’s look at its architectural geography, urban history, political upheavals, scenic spaces, curiosities, and more. Newly drawn maps and detailed illustrations reveal Berlin as never before seen.
