A tribute to the final building in Berlin's "Museum Island", designed by David Chipperfield and photographed by Thomas Struth. This book, published on the occasion of the opening, documents the building and its cultural context. Photographs by Thomas Struth present the completed building both within its urban context as well as in intimate close-ups. In addition, this generous volume contains site plans, floor plans, preliminary drawings and images of architectural influences and contexts. Texts by prominent architects, historians and sociologists complement the artistic photographic documentation.
