Berlin is not only cultural metropolis and known for a young active scene in fashion, film, music, and recently in the food scene, but has also taken a firm place in the ranking in science and research.

In Berlin about 200,000 people from all over the world study, teach and research at

4 universities, 4 art colleges, 7 technical colleges and numerous private schools. Technology parks, laboratories, research centers and business incubators are constantly enriching the scientific landscape with new buildings. In addition to highly specialized research buildings, libraries and university faculties play a major role in contemporary architecture.
