Our contribution to this international competition is thinking the state capital into the future. What could Düsseldorf look like in 30 years? The city does not need to reinvent itself. It can continue to focus on the international significance of its diverse quality of life if the unique qualities are clearly highlighted and strengthened.
How do you develop and set framework conditions to achieve a lively mix of living and working in houses and public spaces? This competition for a plot of land in the centre of Berlin focused on the potential to develop a new, independent district and to reflect on its urban and sociological character.

The Kutuzovsky International Center Moscow with a total area of 368,000 m² comprises two twin towers of approximately 180 and 200 m in height with 45 and 50 storeys as well as five separate nine-storey campus buildings.

On the former open space at Truman Plaza in Berlin-Dahlem, "Five Acres Berlin", a residential quarter with 130 residential units, was developed for Stofanel, which combines the advantages of urban living and large green and water areas due to its location.
Used only as a car park for over 20 years, the derelict area of the Old Bus Yard was given an appropriate urbanity again. The new construction of a hotel, an office building and a mixed-use commercial and office building was able to close the urban gap on an important access road to Aachen city centre as a new quarter.
