This monograph on the reconstruction of (West) Berlin after the Second World War celebrates two architects who left a lasting impact on the urban character of the city and shared an office from 1956 onwards: Paul Schwebes and Hans Schoszberger. To this day, several of their buildings remain emblematic of the City West, characterizing the urban flair of the areas between Kurfürstendamm and Tauentzienstraße, Ernst-Reuter-Platz and Breitscheidplatz, Budapester Straße and Kreuzberg. The book reconstructs over 140 projects—primarily from the tertiary sector, as well as a smaller number of residential projects—from the years before and after 1945. The book further illustrates the political and economic conditions that enabled the architecture to become symbolic of a new era and open society after the war.
