There is a very pleasing symmetry to this image of the Marie Elisabeth Lüders Building, situated directly across from the historic German Reichstag on a bend in the River Spree.
It is part of a wider complex of attractive modern parliamentary buildings in this area of Berlin.
Marie Elisabeth Lüders was a German parliamentarian and an important figure in that country’s women’s rights movement. She was briefly jailed by the Nazis during the 1930s for her outspoken views.
The building was designed by German architect Stephan Braunfels.
