The face of every city is formed by its architectures. Munich's historic silhouette is a landscape of towers. This skyline was created by different people over the course of many centuries. In the 20th and 21st centuries, too, landmarks have been added, and, unlike almost anywhere else, the citizens of Munich have discussed these changes, and at times vehemently opposed them. The historically developed appearance of Munich is taken seriously in this city, which has at the same time acquired and indeed continues to acquire a wealth of new architecture – for Munich is growing. This book shows how, after caesura of the Second World War, Munich defined itself and designed its future. It shows, too, how Munich handles its legacy and continues to develop its urban form in a contemporary fashion.
