Parliamentary District and Pariser Platz

Along the Spree, the new face of political power with the “Band des Bundes”, a ribbon of federal buildings, is particularly impressive. After the federal government moved from Bonn to Berlin, the architectural face of the government changed completely. The new government quarter on the banks of the Spree river is now characterised by representative buildings with a highly symbolic effect, which were previously the result of historical modesty in the Bonn province. Norman Foster and his walkable glass dome of the Reichstag building, the architects Schultes and Frank and their unmistakable spatial composition of the Federal Chancellery and the slender columns of the houses of deputies by Stephan Braunfels symbolize new construction in a modern democracy.
