9783791345895: The Reichstag

In the 1990s Norman Foster transformed Berlin’s Reichstag from a historical symbol of Germany’s defeat and division to an architectural beacon for twenty-first century democracy, as can be seen in this generously illustrated book. This book introduces readers to one of Europe’s iconic buildings and documents its rehabilitation by Foster + Partners through full-color photographs, plans, and sketches, along with informative essays. The new Reichstag’s cutting-edge and environmentally sustainable features; the preservation of its historic details; and the cupola’s new identity as an urban landmark are all discussed in the book, confirming Foster’s innovative vision.
