153. Bremen-Rathaus, Dom und haus der Burgerschaft



Dear Hans,

The "House of Glass" as the Deputies' Assembly Hall
of Bremen is sometimes called, by virtue of its exterior,
is a building designed and built by Wassili Luckhardt in
1959.
The facade reflects the old buildings in the mirror-like
surface of the glass sheathing as a means for converging
and linking the building with the older edifices
surrounding the historic market square.

Best regards.
R
