The Berlin is part of notNeutral's City Plate Collection #1 themed around "City as Gateway" with Los Angeles, Shanghai, Cairo and Berlin chosen. With this theme they asked: how is each city dealing with the effects of agglomeration as its population begins to reach critical mass?
Berlin is the geographical center of Europe. The dramatic white band on the plate marks where the Berlin Wall once stood. Though the reunification of East and West Berlin has not been easy, the fall of the Wall has led to the sharing of ideas, art, and the shape of Europe's post-Cold War future. Berlin is consistently heralded as a modern marvel, and is regarded as one of the world's great showcases of architectural freedom and expression.
