Foster’s dome is a gleaming metal and glass structure
with a ramp that spirals up a to a roof terrace
with 360-degree views of central Berlin.

Foster was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 1999
for his work on the building, which has become
one of the top tourist destinations in Berlin.

Among Foster’s honors is the
Royal Institute of British Architects’ Gold Medal,
a Knighthood,
a life peerage in Britain’s House of Lords,
