dc.descriptionDetail, river facade, circle cutout in cube form; convex form next to the cube; In 1994, Braunfels' design for the 81,000 square meter German Parliament office building, Paul Löbe Haus was awarded first prize. The home of German Parliament's offices and committee chambers opened in 2001 and is one of the most prominent structures in Berlin. In 1996 he was awarded first prize for another parliament building design, the 65,000 square meter Marie Elisabeth Lüders Haus, which houses the German Parliament's offices, library and repository. This second building opened to critical acclaim in 2003. The Paul Loebe Haus and Marie Elisabeth Lüders Haus span the River Spree with matching architecture, symbolizing the unity of East and West Germany. The building stands on the site of the Berlin Wall. Source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page (accessed 4/26/2013)en_US
