House of German Economy

Schweger + Partner
1999




This building is for Deutsche Industrie-und Handelskammertag (DIHK--the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce), an umbrella organization for three groups (BDI, DIHT and BDA) founded in 2001 for key economic lobbyists. The building maintains the height levels of other buildings in the Spree River area and is also stone, like them. Since this is the headquarters for three organizations, some parts are separately used and others shared--like a conference tower and an inner courtyard/atrium. While this is a recent building, its style is restrained, except perhaps for the inner atrium (which I did not see).

 

Corner windows a la Wright!
