Publisher Shinkenchiku-sha


Idea Code 16417

This special instalment brings its critical focus to the world capital of Berlin. Guest editor Yasuhiro Teramatsu writes how our fascination with the city “stems from the way it continually changes to reflect the current age, even while preserving the memory of past glories and tragedies and the complexities of its positive and negative legacies.” In contemporary Berlin, symbolic architecture and urban spaces that had been lost to the war and its aftermath are being restored and revitalised as crucial pieces of the urban fabric. From a spectrum of 85 selected projects, the magazine examines how change has impacted the city with regard to both its heritage and modernity.
