Encounter the architecture and sculptural work of Andreas Schlüter’s masterful façades and those of his successor Eosander von Göthe in breath-taking new photographs by Leo Seidel: the restored Berlin Palace in the centre of the capital is both a monument to the Baroque building and a vibrant new city complex for culture. With the palace, the urban reference point for the historic centre of the city between the boulevard Unter den Linden and the Spree Island has returned. The magnificent photographs and multifaceted texts by authors who, as participants in this major project, look behind the scenes, tell of the diversity and significance of the Baroque sandstone façades, their technical and handcrafted reconstruction, and the architectural conception of the building.
