Berliner Bauten und Projekte 1965–2005
In 1965, Meinhard von Gerkan and Volkwin Marg founded the architect’s office gmp von Gerkan, Marg und Partner in Hamburg; since then, numerous projects have helped it to establish an undisputed reputation both at home and abroad. However, 40 years of gmp von Gerkan, Marg und Partner have also – and primarily – made a considerable mark on the architecture of Berlin. Here alone, they have erected more than 25 buildings, ranging from Tegel Airport to Berlin’s new main railway station – Lehrter Bahnhof –, which is to be opened in 2006. Photographs by Marcus Bredt throw a surprising light on the buildings constructed and tell the story of those Berliners who have lived with and in gmp’s architecture for the past four decades. This richly illustrated volume – including a detailed list of works in Berlin – describes the individual projects, located by district, and so offers both professionals and laymen an exciting and informative insight into the architectural history of gmp in Berlin. An unusual, unique guide to Berlin!
