German Bundestag Administration
Architecture: MARK Architects, Berlin
Unlike the Parliament building, its administrative arm attracts neither tourists nor guests. Anyone entering here is coming to work.
Despite its functional purpose, the entrance area of the former panel building presents an invitingly open and transparent aspect.
This is reflected by the free-standing stainless steel pedestal. Leaving the glass facade totally unscathed, it provides an intercom and call button at the right ergonomic height.
