Item description for Bauwelt Berlin Annual 1996: A Chronicle of Architecture 1996û2001 by F. Zwoch...

By the turn of the millennium the city will have undergone a complete transformation, a process to which almost all architects of international stature will have contributed. These breathtaking events cry out to be documented: a detailed chronicle of what is happening in Berlin in the area of architecture and of the many steps involved in the reconstruction of a metropolis.

The main section of the first volume shows the cityblocks along Friedrichstrasse designed by Nouvel, Ungers, Pei, Kleihues, Dudler, Sawade, von Gerkan, Kollhoff among others and the famous indoor cycling track by Perrault. These buildings are described and shown in a manner which underscores their unique characteristics, taking the reader for a walk or a metro ride to providing many different vistas of the buildings. Naturally the Bauwelt Berlin Annual 1996 also pays homage to the technological and conceptual innovations now being tested on site in Berlin underwater concrete, the management of incomparably complex construction site logistics, the conveyance of the Kaisersaal on air cushions for example.
