Object description

The architect Rem Koolhaas' architectural design contrast with the high roofs and stone façades jostling for postion on Potsdamer Platz. Instead of creating symbols, he chose to represent his country with a radically ambivalent modernity. Located on the river Spree, the interior of this individual glass design is a harmonious landscape en miniature. An almost 200-metre long corridor runs through the building from the foyer to the roof restaurant, to which the skybox, used for conferences, ans the overhanging glass ramp are also connected.
