Said Ben van Berkel about the event: “It is essential to understand that ‘housing for everyone’ is not simply a matter of providing homes for all, it is also a question of what the home of the future should be; how we can meet the demands of all future residents and provide housing that fulfils their varied and changing needs.”

The August 2016 issue of a+u explores the architecture and cityscape of Berlin. The fascination of this 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. This issue, with new photos, is devoted to the “now” of the city and its architecture in their contemporary and historical contexts.

Metropolis Magazine has released their 2016 rankings of the world's most "livable" cities. Acknowledging that what makes a city "livable" can often be subjective, the team at Metropolis emphasizes that in creating the list they "focused on the concerns at Metropolis’ core—housing, transportation, sustainability, and culture." The result of this research was last year's top prize-winner Toronto dropping to the number 9 spot and Copenhagen, which last year took the number 4 spot, jumping to the top. Rounding out the top three are Berlin and Helsinki.
