The decision to move Germany's government seat from Bonn to Berlin by the year 2000 poses an architectural challenge and has fostered an international debate on which building styles are appropriate to represent German national identity. This volume investigates the political decisions and historical events behind the redesign of Berlin's official architecture. It tells of the complex drama of politics, memory, cultural values and architecture, in which Helmut Kohl, Albert Speer, Sir Norman Foster, and I.M. Pei all figure as players.
