To celebrate the summer opening of their Berlin Office, Hutchinson & Partners are hosting a party to breakdown the boundaries of Brexit through an evening of architecture, music, food and drink. The event will also mark the launch of Twelve Sites, a research project that will look at 12 sites in the 12 districts of Berlin, over a 12 month period, culminating in an exhibition in Berlin in July 2020. London and Berlin share many of the same issues, from growth and housing shortage to workplace shifts and heritage conservation, but there are also a huge variety of things that make each city distinct. There has never been a more important moment to identify points of similarity and difference, extolling both as positive areas for learning and growth.
Beer, bratwurst and banging tunes, will remind us that there is much to celebrate about the kinship we have with our friends on the continent and that we are still Europeans despite the recent political turmoil. Prost!
