    Quizzical Pursuit
    —The Architecture Puzzler

    Created by Dave Guadagni

    Solution to Last Week's Puzzler
    Architecture Puzzler #-1

    Question

    Cristo has wrapped it with 1.1 million square feet (102,000 square meters) of canvas and Foster & Partners have renovated and restored it. Which building do we refer to?

    Answer

    Berlin's Reichstag. This building, important to 20th-century German political history, was once the symbol of the short-lived Weimar Democracy, was set fire by the Nazis, and briefly flew the Soviet flag when Berlin fell in 1945.
