Greater Berlin will be 100 years old this year, an occasion marked by a public exhibition at the Kronprinzenpalais, Berlin Mitte.
Over the past 100 years Metropolitan Berlin has changed and reinvented itself under a variety of influences. Exhibition themes include diversity of centres, planning, housing, transport, sustainability and major projects. A key focus of the exhibition will be a comparison with the peer cities of Moscow, Vienna, Paris and London.
The London contribution will illustrate key topics and projects shaping London and will feature two 5th Studio projects: The Crossrail Atlas (2010), and ongoing work on the Royal Docks.
The Mayor of Berlin, Michael Müller, is the lead patron; the main curator is Professor Harald Bodenschatz. The initiator is Berlin 2020, which is part of the Architekten und Ingenieurverein zu Berlin e.V. AIV in cooperation with the Architekturmuseum of the Technical University Berlin.
