a+u 2016:08 "Berlin – Contexts of Architecture and Cityscape"

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.

The exploration starts with the Prussia's architect and city planner Karl Friedrich Schinkel, from the early 1800s, and ends with today. The issue features 90 works and essays by scholars and architects.
