The book collects architectural designs, extensive research material on building projects, texts on the Berlin Republic, reviews on the city, as well as teaching materials and thus gives an insight into the work of the Berlin-based architect and urban researcher Arno Brandlhuber, who also teaches as Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg. In addition to taking part in the Venice Architecture Biennale (2012, 2008, 2006, 2004), the design of the German Pavilion at the São Paulo Biennale (2004), together with Thomas Demand, and worldwide presentations of his designs, Brandlhuber received numerous German and international architecture awards. Brandlhubers conversion of Brunnenstraße 9 (gallery house KOW) is considered a landmark of the New Berlin Architecture. The house had been continued building on the foundations of a failed 1990s investment and shows a sharp experimental interpretation of the Brutalist architectural style of the early 21st Century, where fair-face concrete continues to dominate. Concrete as a building material represents modernity’s promise of a civil life in the city and, to this day, is one of the main raw materials of urban architecture.

With an interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist, texts by Nikolaus Kuhnert, Anh-Linh Ngo, Achim Reese, and a photo essay by Erica Overmeer.

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition
