Stuttgart 21's Tunnel Vision

In Germany one building helped the Green's to their historic Baden-Württemberg election victory

On November 27th the German state of Baden-Württemberg will vote in a referendum about the future of the controversial rail tunnel project, Stuttgart 21. The city has also been one of the country's most dynamic sustainable architecture, engineering and research centres. The grand rail project casts a spotlight on a sector's relationship - while celebrated for technical innovation - with public participation in planning decisions about the fabric of their built future.
