Hardly another European capital has had so turbulent a history as Berlin. Especially in the twentieth century, tumultuous historical events have left their mark on the city: its growth, the golden 1920s, the dictatorships, the scars of war, reconstruction, division and then reunification. All this called for new planning and offered architects and city planners room and occasion for new projects, new ideas, new visions for Berlin. The city continues to grow and develop, so that the discussion about the future appearance of the German capital is still going on.

Over the past years this discussion has frequently been carried on in and through museums, and it is now taken up again by 'Berlin Projects. Architectural Drawings 1920–1990'. It shows an exciting selection of important moments in Berlin’s urban and architectural development, illustrated by hand-drawn designs by Hans Scharoun, Hans Poelzig, Frei Otto, Gottfried Böhm, Zaha Hadid, Álvaro Siza Vieira and other renowned architects. The exhibition should by no means be seen as a complete documentation of Berlin’s architectural history in the twentieth century. It is rather a selection of drawings that aims to present the variety of ideas and visions for Berlin, and furthermore to stimulate a comparison of the drawn and the actually built architecture.

The exhibition is a cooperation with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt am Main and presents a selection of works from its extensive collection of over 20,000 architectural drawings.
