Entrance Hall with   
Entrance Hall with "River" by Barbara Steinman.


Designed for the floor of the Reception Hall in the new Embassy, the shape of a river is inlaid with laser-cut white and blue-gray granites in a field of polished black. Stainless steel strips delineate latitude and longitude. The inlay looks like an ice floe or a bathymetric map of water depths. The work suggests an overlay of sites: Canada within the city of Berlin, each known for its many waterways and rivers.

Integrated art design: Barbara Steinman, River - Rivière - Fluss (2005)
