Berlin's historic Reichstagsgebäude is being transformed into the new home of Germany's national parliament, the <font color=red>Bundestag</font>. In the process the century-old landmark (built 1884-1894) is getting its former dome back, albeit in a more modern form designed by architect Sir Norman Foster. The original dome was destroyed during the Second World War but never rebuilt. (See the photo of a model of the new German government complex.) The move from Bonn to Berlin is scheduled for completion between 1999 and 2001. The Bundestag plans to move into its new quarters in 1999. The top two lines on the sign read: 'The reconstruction of the Reichstag building as the seat of the German Bundestag (federal parliament).'
