The architect Peter P. Schweger has called his work "a critical continuation of Modernism," by which he adapts those principles with sensitivity to specific environments and historical context. This approach has earned him and his firm a slew of commissions and international prizes, from a restaurant in Hanover's Baroque Herrenh��?user Gardens, its shape alluding to the garden's hedges but with a contrasting frosted-glass fa��?ade, to a redesign of the German Bundesrat plenary chamber in Berlin, the transparent ceiling signifying democratic openness (while solar panels save energy). He even impressed Donald Trump enough to be hired (and not fired) for the eventually abandoned Trump Tower project in Stuttgart. Plans, large photographs and documentation from the Schweger office's past six years of work on government buildings, museums, office towers and reconfigured historic buildings show the range of one of Germany's top firms.
