Percent for Art is a measure-related artistic work that is created in connection with public construction measures (building construction and civil engineering). It can be of a temporary or permanent nature. Since 1979, there has been an administrative regulation for the realization of art in public construction projects. The state of Berlin is committed to this tradition and wants to further strengthen the status of art in architecture and art in urban space, including its mediation, maintenance and documentation.

Unlike purely decorative additions to architecture, art in architecture deals specifically with a building and its urban environment. In addition, the artistic works are freely accessible to the general public outside of museums and exhibitions.
