Description

How do we want to live in the future? Which creative strategies and technical concepts can we employ to manage todays social and economic challenges? There are no simple instructions, no clear answers on how to achieve a better future. Updating Germany features one hundred architectural, artistic, and design projects meant to whet ones appetite for more: architectural designs, research projects, and conceptual models that are currently being developed or realised in Germany. The concepts assembled in Updating Germany open up new perspectives between high-tech and low-tech, the post-fossil landscape and innovative building technology, between ecologically friendly lifestyles and social utopias. A collection of ideas for everyone who feels responsible for creating a sustainable future through architectural design and urban planning.

Updating Germany accompanies the German exhibit at the 2008 International Architectural Biennial in Venice. Projects featured include Graft, Werner Sobek, Instant Architekten, Sauerbruch Hutton, Dominik Dreiner, Zaha Hadid, Thomas Herzog, Rolf Disch, Baufrsche, Ingo Vetter, Karo Architekten, bof Architekten, Eike Roswag andAnna Heringer.
