The architects were asked to create a project for the reconstruction of the Berlin Palace of the Republic (also called the City Palace, since it was built by the GDR authorities on the site of the City Palace of the Hohenzollern, destroyed during the Second World War). Now there are heated debates around this building: is it worth or not to demolish this symbol of socialist Germany? So, the best option for rebuilding this current building was recognized by the jury as the "Palace Cookies" project, its authors are architects from Amsterdam Kirsten Husig and Seren Grunert. They filled Palace Square and its surroundings with chocolate, while the building itself is made of cookies, the facade is decorated with an arcature of sugar glaze, which strengthens it and, at the same time, gives it lightness. The Berlin Castle of Light by Johannes and Julia Schneider from the German capital makes an especially strong impression with a variety of urban planning ideas. The authors offer to the attention of the audience an area where folk festivals can be organized all year round. The jury was also interested in the landscape design based on planting candy trees. Third place went to the project "From the Middle" by Axel Ramstorff, Berlin. The judges of the competition appreciated his courage: the Palace Square, cluttered with gingerbread cubes, stands out from the general urban planning picture. Such a provocative decision is intended to induce Berliners to come to an agreement on the fate of the Palace of the Republic.
