The DUTCH EMBASSY BERLIN, GERMANY

OMA, 2003

Jessica Kovarik Professor Passas - Architectural Analysis DIA - Winter 08


The Dutch Embassy in Berlin is a design project about movement. A multi-functional circulation path which moves throughout the building is the foundation of it’s design and program. The circulation pathway performs functionally and mechanically, as a ventilation duct and also a spatial element from which the structure is guided. The spatial organization of the building is derived from the highly public circulation pathway of off which adjacent semi-public spaces are hung and further progress into private spaces. On an experiential level, the material conditions of the circulation trajectory create a core of spatial reflection through a series of view sequences upon which the city of Berlin is put on display. The users of the building become spectators of the city.
