714. St.Petersbourg, Ambassade Allemagne
The German Embassy to the Russian Empire, in St. Petersburg's St. Isaaks Platz, was designed by prominent German architect Peter Behrens in just eight weeks. Mies van der Rohe, an apprentice at the office of Behrens at that time, was appointed as building construction manager. Mies said much later that under Behrens he learned "the grand form".
