Sitting in the corner of Picassoplatz, this office building has a quietly commanding presence. An apparently simple, rigid box of steel and glass, it nevertheless draws the eye, despite the fact it has no showy façade or tricky architectural flourishes. For all that it is a sharply modern building, its proportions are beautifully classical.
