Hochhaus

Wunsch und Wirklichkeit

About half of the high-rises around the world have been built in the twenty-first century. This construction boom has turned the high-rise into a formative element of the most important sphere of collective life today: the city. The symbolic power of the high-rise often seems larger than life. This publication Hochhaus. Wunsch und Wirklichkeit shows contemporary buildings and projects in their cultural and urban contexts, which can differ markedly in, for example, Europe and Asia. Featuring numerous works of contemporary photography, the publication also takes a look at the realities of contemporary high-rises in an increasingly urbanized world.
