With Robert Koch High School by SSP Rüthnick Architekten and Biot Municipal Building Extension by Atelier EGR. “Sport Halls and Spirituality”, shows projects by :mlzd and Nikken Sekkei.”Living with Trees in the Sky” looks at three recent examples that are a radical departure from the hard and inert look of normal high-rise architecture which exposes concrete, steel and glass.
