The German Bundestag in the Reichstag Building

£9.99

Product description

FOREWARD by Norbert Lsmmert (President of the German Bundestag, 2007)

"Welcome to the German Bundestag!

This book will take you on an interesting and informative journey through German parliamentary history and its most symbolic edifice, the Reichstag Building. You will learn about the working procedures, structures and functions of the German Bundestag, take a tour of its buildings, and undoubtedly discover a few surprises about Parliament of which you were previously unaware, such as its remarkable art collection. You will gain insights into parliamentarians` working week and how they negotiate the various, and occasionally arduous, stages in the passage of legislation.

The glass dome of the Reichstag Building, designed by British architect Norman Foster at the Bundestag specific request, has not only rapidly become the now emblem of Berlin. It is also a tangible symbol of parliamentary reform, of greater transparency and openness.

Norman Foster`s renovation now shows, in terms of both outer appearance and interior design, the extent of the transformation of Parliament`s self image. When it was built, at the time of the German Empire, the seat of Parliament had to be as imposing as possible to allow the young Parliament to demonstrate its self-confidence with regard to the Imperial Palace, the seat of the monarchy. Today, the renovated Reichstag exudes confidence with a note self-irony; it is a building characterised, fittingly, by dramatic openings, clear perspectives and transparent structures. And this book is also an example of this new transparency and openness. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have."

Excellent pages with slight edge-wear.
