An astonishing building

The "new" Dutch Embassy (2004) - or Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands to give it its official name - is located at Klosterstra├če 50, in the former East Berlin by the side of the River Spree. It's designed by OMA/Rem Koolhaas.
In 2005 OMA received the Mies van der Rohe Award for its design of the building.
