The exhibition presents fourteen projects by young architects from Germany that have been completed abroad mainly since 2004. The selected examples from construction, interior design, urban design and landscape architecture show how these architects approach working in foreign environments, how they redefine and add to existing buildings, and how they create new ones under unusual conditions.
