Botschaft der VAE
After the reunification of Germany, the United Arab Emirates acquired from the Berlin Senate an attractive "ex-territorial" plot in the diplomatic district of Berlin "Tiergarten" and announced an international architectural competition.
KRAUSE BOHNE Architects + Planners International obtained the contract, coupled with the explicit request by His Excellency, the Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates, to convey a message from the young state on the Arabian Gulf to Berlin’s citizens.
With a re-interpretation of Arab and Islamic architecture in conjunction with the Berlin architectural tradition, KRAUSE BOHNE Architects + Planners International managed to spirit the viewer away to the world of 1001 nights, summoning associations with the Arab countries and their architecture.
The impressive appearance of the embassy forms an effective contrast to the neighbouring buildings.
