In 1997, the German real estate savings bank Deutsche Bauspar AG in Frankfurt published a splendid series of graphic works aimed at raising public awareness of the need to improve artistic and architectural requirements in the creation of urban spaces. The organising institution invited ten internationally renowned artists and architects to express their ideas and proposals on the design of an imaginary public square or the improvement of an existing one in a graphic work.
This silk-screen printing shows the project of recovery and redesign of St. Matthew's Church Square in Berlin, a project dated between 1984 and 1997, which radiates over a wide area, as can be seen in the image.

Hans Hollein was one of the fathers of Modern Architecture. Although he is known for his architectural work, composed of an ergonomic geometry of facades and buildings, he also had stages of industrial design creating interior furniture. His legacy includes notable projects such as Haas House and the Albertina extension, two landmarks of the Austrian capital, and institutional projects such as bank branches in Liechtenstein, Spain and Peru.
