The Tempelhof Airport and Olympic grounds are well-known even outside of Berlin. The buildings presented in the book show how diverse the architecture was during these years. The author explains their different functions as well as their intended political message and how they were used for propaganda. Historical photos show the original buildings. Visitors to Berlin and Berlin residents curious about their city’s history will find this book illuminating. The sites are easy to find with the help of a map.

The first edition of this book described a city in the early stages of transformation following the demise of the Wall and reunification. Berlin was then the largest building site in Europe and the centre of an international debate on urban development . The world’s leading architects – among them Jean Nouvel, Norman Foster, Josef Kleihues, Rem Koolhaas, Frank Gehry, Hans Kollhoff, Moore, Ruble, Yudell, Dominique Perrault, Richard Rogers, Renzo Piano and Shin Takamatsu – were queuing up to leave their mark on the place. This edition looks at the quality of the results, with projects including the restoration of the Reichstag, a department store by Nouvel, the finished Jewish Museum by Daniel Libeskind, the GSW building by Sauerbruch Hutton, Leon Bolhage’s Indian Embassy, and the joint Scandinavian Embassy, just two of the many interesting embassies to follow the government from Bonn to Berlin.
