Fifteen years ago, it would have been difficult — and in some cases impossible — to engineer the buildings in these pages. Now powerful computer-assisted design and manufacturing techniques let architects build according to wholly new geometries. In this era, the rectilinear glass box has become a quaint relic of the predigital past.
（其實附近不遠處還有一棟很特殊也值得一看的建築是 Lloyd’s Building）
這讓我心中暗自決定，下回再到德國 or 歐洲的話，一定想辦法安排行程去看看這些奇特的「房子」。
