Berlin Open Space – A City Guide to Open Space
Berlin is brimming with public parks, squares and gardens. They form an important hub for residents and tourists alike, and bring together a wide range of people. Whether you want to relax in a nature park, take a stroll through artfully designed gardens, experience the hustle and bustle of a busy square, let off steam on a half-pipe, or visit a memorial site, Berlin has something for everyone. With a special focus on open space design and garden architecture, this volume presents 75 selected contemporary and historic open spaces. Concise English summaries of the German texts make it a reference book as well as a city guide to alternative destinations for experiencing the city. The projects collected in this book show how the value of green zones and their use have changed. QR codes lead you directly to the corresponding points on your online city map.
