The first publication on the inventive architectural visions developed for Berlin's 750th anniversary

In 1987, Berlin celebrated its 750th anniversary on both sides of the wall that partitioned the city. In their efforts to recognize this milestone despite the literal division of their country, architects in East and West Berlin constructed a variety of notable buildings as they explored concepts of urban repair and postmodernist design. Today, these buildings have been modified, threatened with demolition, or disappeared completely, but their legacy as witnesses to a new era of design remains, and is surveyed in this publication.

Featured architects include: Hinrich and Inken Baller, Christian Enzmann and Bernd Ettel, John Hejduk with Moritz M ller, Josef Paul Kleihues, Michael Kny and Thomas Weber, Hans Kollhoff, Dorothea Krause, Rob Krier, Peter Meyer, Frei Otto with Hermann Kendel, Martin K enzlen and G nther Ludewig, Manfred Prasser, G nter Stahn, Helmut Stingl, James Stirling and Michael Wilford, Peter St rzebecher, Kjell Nylund and Christof Puttfarken, Oswald Mathias Ungers and Solweig Steller-Wendland.
