Tradition and Modernity | Berlin, Germany

You can think about the German government whatever you want. But when it comes to the government district it has to be appreciated as a flagship for modern architecture in Berlin. The district is still not completed; right now they again add some new buildings. Inevitably this leads to a strong contrast with the just 10 year old Paul-Löbe-Haus on the one side and the historical Reichstag building on the other.
