Kanada Haus

I passed by Kanada Haus, just off Potsdamer Platz, many times on a bus when I was in Berlin.  Its nondescript appearance, however, never invited me in for a visit until my last evening in Berlin when I was walking by it.  It's the Canadian Embassy in Berlin - so why not drop by and have a look?  Just like the modesty of a true Canadian, the design by Kuwabara Payne McKenna Blumberg Architects does not reveal the architectural richness of its inner courtyard from its pretty bland curb appeal.  It was already closed when I went there.  I should find another chance to take a tour inside when I visit Berlin next time.
