The representation of architectural models by the Young German Architects; young as in below 45 unlike India; as in Germany that is the actual age when the architects start realizing their projects and developing new projects. The selected examples are from construction, interior design, urban design and landscape architecture illustrate the broad range of skills. They show how young architects approach working in new and foreign environments, how they redefine and add to existing buildings, and how they create new ones under unusual conditions and also using the easy cost effective components to renovate the city. These architects come up with sensitive solutions for challenges in architecture today, always with an eye on the future, sustainability, and new technologies. Contrary to today’s global media interest in the spectacular and the star, this exhibition presents innovative architectural projects that confidently and quietly take a pragmatic approach, concentrating entirely on the locations for which they were created.
