Marking the centenary of Greater Berlin, the Berlin Architects and Engineers Association (Architekten- und Ingenieursverein AIV) launched an international urban development competition on the future of the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region. The first prize was awarded to the entry "Zusammenwachsen - Landschaf(f)tStadt" submitted by a consortium comprising of Albers, Malcovati, and Vogt, supported by Arup. The winning entry will be presented in the Berlin Kronprinzenpalais from 1 October 2020 as part of the exhibition "Unfinished Metropolis: 100 Years of Urban Development for Greater Berlin".
A total of 55 entries from all over the world were submitted anonymously as part of the competition. In addition to the overarching concept of regional development, submissions were encouraged to focus on the themes of urban space, urban planning and zoning, transport and connectivity and building development.
