Metropolitan District is designed as a healthy, eco-friendly green environment with tree-lined streets, shaded public spaces, and cooling water features away from noise and traffic pollution. This focus on the pedestrian results in streets where people walk and spend time out of choice—not just necessity—but because its streets are memorable, engaging, safe, accessible, healthy, attractive, fun, and convenient.
Located in Berlin Zehlendorf, the Truman Plaza parallels the adjacent Clayallee and is part of a larger master plan that balances its historical urban context with its integration of a delicate onsite forest. The project constitutes offices, retail, health and sports facilities, which together form an urban setting situated around a central plaza within this leafy borough on the edge of Berlin.

Architecture is a means to bring people to the natural environment. The Museum features a large plaza that characterizes the building. The development of this area was vital to connecting the building to the environment.
It arose from the idea to strengthen the relationship between the town and the natural landscape that exists around the museum. The plaza gives a public space to the town, it is a place where people can eat and enjoy the landscape which is particularly striking for the site lies next to a dry river bed known in as the “Bar- ranco del Infierno”.
