Description Change this

The DZ Bank building on Pariser Platz, designed by Frank Gehry, is one of Berlin's new office buildings on the reconstructed Pariser Platz in front of Berlin's landmark, the Brandenburger Tor.

The interior courtyard of the building shows Gehry's trademark: a massive, titanium, morphing form. This being, first and foremost, a bank, the facade - a cascading mixture of sand-coloured stone and swooning glass, graced by massive chrome and glass doors - subtly disguises what lies beyond. In this case a towering, curvaceous fish that houses a central conference space and captures motion and movement in the building.
