Berlin, Warsaw, Moscow – Three capital cities of “the other Europe “, three points of the history of the 19th century. At the end of World War II, Warsaw and East Berlin were rebuilt with the model of the socialist city like it was the case for Moscow during the 30s. When the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, these cities became the most important building sites of Europe. Their architectures participated to the rebirth of the national idea and to the transformation of the State institutions. But their urban forms reflect the common tensions between democracy and liberal economy, between the city of the 19th century and modernism.
