The catalogue accompanying the German exhibit at the 2008 International Architectural Biennial in Venice.

How do we want to live in the future? Which creative strategies and technical concepts can we employ to manage today’s social and economic challenges?There are no simple instructions, no clear answers on how to achieve a better future. Updating Germany features one hundred architectural, artistic, and design projects meant to whet one’s appetite for more: architectural designs, research projects, and conceptual models that are currently being developed or realized in Germany. The concepts assembled in Updating Germany open up new perspectives between high-tech and low-tech, the post-fossil landscape and innovative building technology, between ecologically friendly lifestyles and social utopias. A collection of ideas for everyone who feels responsible for creating a sustainable future through architectural design and urban planning.
