Spotlight on Berlin. Fast forward to 2033.

Society was at an inflection point a decade ago, but action was not taken in accordance with the urgency of the situation: The IPCC’s target of halving global emissions by 2030 has failed. Mass migration and the displacement of people has continually increased due to war, financial crises, and effects of climate change. Prices for reinforced concrete and smelted building products such as steel have exponentially increased due to a still ongoing energy and resource crisis.
