Florian Nagler. Kirchenzentrum. Munich-Riem

The new city of Riem forms part of Munich's strategy for growth, which is based on three concepts: urban, compact and green. It lies on the the land of the former airport and tries to achieve a liveable environment based on three basic ingredients: home of the Trade Fair and the whole range of associated offices, social housing and facilities for 16,000 inhabitants and a 200-hectare park.

In 1998 the trade fair installations were inaugurated and the first residents started to arrive. Ten years later, Riem is a bustling mixture of workers and residents, with a neighbourhood life revolving around the shopping centre, located in the pedestrian area, and the civic-educational-religious centre designed by Nagler.
