Architecture needs to start from an idea (Alfred Berger and Tiina Parkkinen)
The buildings by Berger+Parkkinen Architekten are distinguished by a clear, elegant urbanity and an innovative approach to materials. The award-winning Embassies of the Nordic Countries in Berlin (1995–1999) counts among their most publicized works. This first monograph about the office includes an essay by Francisco Barrachina Pastor, which explores the careers and design method of the architects through selected projects, an in-depth interview, and a comprehensive index of works.
