In 2018, Germany will be reunified for 28 years–exactly as long as the inner German border wall (1961–1989) existed. In the German Pavilion at the 2018 Architecture Biennale in Venice, GRAFT architects–Lars Krückeberg, Wolfram Putz and Thomas Willemeit–together with the German politician Marianne Birthler take this parallel as an opportunity to explore the effects of division and the process of healing as a dynamic spatial phenomenon.

This accompanying publication examines prominent examples of urban and architectural design that have arisen along the course of the former border strip since the reunification and address aspects of division and integration. Special focus is given to the site of the former Berlin Wall. In a series of essays, renowned architects, urban planners and political commentators examine the urban and social manifestations and implications of these developments. The publication also responds to current debates on nations, protectionism and division. As the world grows together, walls are increasingly being discussed and built that divide people from one another.

In a joint production with the Zukunftsinstitut, GRAFT has published FUTOPOLIS, a detailed examination of the megatrend urbanization. It is no coincidence that the big issues for the future of our environment are unfolding in our cities and metropolises. Urban hubs, our political, economic and creative centres, are gradually becoming 21st century states. What consequences does this have for urban development, administration and infrastructure? Where do opportunities arise for companies? And, how do the needs of society change? Likewise: what will happen to rural regions and how will they develop? The study addresses these questions and identifies and examines key trends in the future development of urban and rural areas.

The study is available in German only.
