Historic Reichstag in Berlin
The cardboard model of the Reichstag is a life-like model of the rebuilt Reichstag building in Berlin with its new glass dome, designed by Norman Foster.
The original Parliament Building at the Brandenburg Gate was designed by the Frankfurt architect Paul Wallot. The construction lasted from 1884 to 1894. The oriented at Renaissance forms rectangular building, contained the central assembly and two atriums, reception room, a library and offices for the MPs. The meeting room opened up into a stunning glass dome, which took in lots of light and towered over the rest of the building.
In 1933, the Plenary Hall was an arson victim. The glass dome was renovated, but the building now on only used for exhibitions. During WW2 the Wallot building was completely destroyed. During reconstruction in the 60s were dispensed with the former glass dome.
1991 it was decided that the historic building to be restored as the seat of an all-German Parliament and used. The contract for the reconstruction was the British architect Norman Foster, whose design will meet the essence of the Parliament and of the history of the building, but also implement a forward-looking energy concept. Thus, the interior highest requirements should correspond to modern communication and workstation technology, the same original building structures by Paul Wallot be exposed. Through a high-quality thermal insulation and use of solar energy, the energy requirement should be kept as low as possible. A built cogeneration unit which is operated with environmentally friendly vegetable oil is set to significantly reduce emissions. The building regains a glass dome, but not in historical form, but in the architecture of the late 20th century, to be a new landmark in the capital Berlin.
