Description Change this

In 1989 architects Matthias Sauerbruch and Lisa Hutton won the competition for an office building in Berlin, on a site located near Checkpoint Charlie. The completed structure reacts with sensitivity to the historic structures located nearby, and has become a landmark in itself. It is also eco-friendly, using natural ventilation instead of air conditioning.
