Since 1978, Dieter Leistner has been photographing people waiting at public transport stops throughout the world. Whether in Asia or Europe, South America or the Indian Ocean, in the countryside or in town, in capitalism or socialism – Leistner captures those waiting subtly and with a professional perspective. He opens up a cosmos of instantaneous shots with their own particular aura: sometimes cheerful, sometimes melancholic, sometimes bustling, sometimes lonesome. The observer is always part of the composition, recognising themselves in some of those waiting.
Dieter Leistner is a professor of photography at the University of Applied Sciences in Würzburg and works internationally as a lecturer. With numerous exhibitions he is among the most well-known contemporary German photographers. His photos have won multiple awards and been published widely.

How art can make a contribution to the “healing environment” is shown by the Robert Bosch Hospital in Stuttgart with a Germany-wide unique and pioneeringart concept. Whether it is seriously ill patients in the intensive care unit, visitors in the public corridors or employees in sterile functional areas: each is stimulatedin their own way by the total of 48 artistic interventions.
The description of the many approaches and possible effects of the art projects realised at the Robert Bosch Hospital during the period 1998-2018 is supplemented by specialist contributions from the fields of art, design and corporate philosophy. They open the topic of an interdisciplinary approach and offer a view towards the future potential of healing art in an international context.

architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. Since 2003, the prize has been awarded by architekturbild e.v., a non-profi t organisation, and since 2008 in cooperation with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum, Frankfurt, and since 2016 with the Bundesstiftung Baukultur, Potsdam/Berlin. The theme for 2019 is »Joyful Architecture«. We rarely think of architecture as comforting, fun and playful. The book therefore presents examples of architecture that playfully and positively impact the built environment and its inhabitants. These examples can be understated or cliched, autonomous or in dialogue with their surroundings, hidden or obvious.

European Architectural Photography Prize 2017architekturbild, the European Architectural Photography Prize, has been awarded on a two-yearly basis since 1995. This time the subject is "Borders". Whether in the sense of opening or closing, of including or excluding or as definitions of geographical or (urban) spatial areas, borders are physically present and clearly recognizable or subtly noticeable, but always perceived as either protecting or deterring. In the context of the European Architectural Potography Prize 2017 we by no means focus on the negative interpretations of this term but rather on the photographic-aristic involvment with our buit environment.
Revitalization of a LandmarkFor three years, the architecture photographer HG Esch documented with impressive images the energetic renovation of the HVB-Tower in Munich, which has been the head office of the HypoVereinsbank since 2016. The characteristic exterior of the building, mirroring the sky in accordance with the design idea of the original architects Walther and Bea Betz and whose color is constantly changing with the intensity and incidence of sunlight, was replaced by a technologically pioneering façade construction. It contributes signifi cantly to the new sustainability concept for one of Munich’s landmarks, achieving a significant reduction in energy consumption.a particular challenge for Hennarchitekten, HVB Immobilien AG and all others involved in the construction was the visual reconstruction of the distinctive outer appearance of the façade of the heritage-protected HVBTower, alongside all the technical innovation.
