|The noted Japanese architect Arata Isozaki is yet another of the star architects who has helped to create the new modern area of Potsdamer Platz. This bank building is just south of the Daimler Buildings by Sir Richard Rogers. His work actually consists of two blocks with striking acute angles as well as a gentle curve in the front, joined by five three-story bridges. (See the plan.) The area between the blocks is designed as a park although this is not evident from the street.|
