The Federal Chancellery, Germany’s ‘White House’, is a sparkling, modern compound designed by Axel Schultes and Charlotte Frank and consisting of two parallel office blocks flanking a central white cube. Eduardo Chillida’s rusted-steel Berlin sculpture graces the eastern forecourt. The best views of the entire building are from the Moltkebrücke (bridge) or the northern Spree River promenade.
