Publisher's blurb: The Dutch Embassy in Berlin by OMA/Rem Koolhaas is one more intriguing example of contemporary architecture by Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture. After the Kunsthal in Rotterdam and the Congrexpo in Lille, the Berlin embassy once again attests to the astonishing design talent of this internationally renowned architect. This publication provides an in-depth analysis of the building's design and its realisation. It includes line drawings by OMA illustrating the design's points of departure. The famous German photographer Candida Höfer presents the embassy building in a series of 40 photographs giving her personal perspective on its exterior and interior. The Parisian architecture critic Francois Chaslin analyses the building in an extensive and poetic essay.
