Since the reunification ofGermany, the federal government has erected scores of groundbreaking buildings for legislative bodies, technology and science, or defense, as well as museums and other cultural institutions.

This book presents the extraordinary quality of the many different types of structures funded by the federal government and other (co)sponsors. Extensive texts and photos document the approximately eighty buildings, which, since reunification, have either been constructed or completely renovated in Berlin , the individual states, and abroad. Essays by renowned architectural critics and interviews with architects supplement this comprehensive, representative assessment of public architecture since 1990.
