About this title

Synopsis:

Focusing on 35 distinct areas of the city, this book presents the new face of the German capital, including the former West, the new centre and the government district, in photographs that look at the contrasts between new and old. Architectural historian Christiane Kruse examines Berlin's past, offering insights into its rebirth as a thriving, thoroughly modern metropolis and using texts that place current developments in a historical context. Rare, archive photographs from the GDR and before the war show the remarkable transformation of the city.

From the Publisher:

Focusing on 35 distinct areas of the city, this book presents the new face of the German capital including the former West, the new center, and the government district with stunning photographs that look at the startling contrasts between old and new.

Both local and international architects have carried out rebuilding projects, most famously Renzo Piano’s Daimler Chrysler project, Michael Wilford’s British Embassy in Berlin, Norman Foster’s Reichstag conversion, Helmut Jahn’s piece for Sony, Daniel Libeskind’s Jewish Museum Berlin. Architectural historian Christiane Kruse examines Berlin’s vibrant, checkered past, offering surprising insights into its rebirth as a thriving, thoroughly modern metropolis and using texts that place current developments in a historical context. Rare, archive photographs from the GDR and before the war show the remarkable transformation of the city.
