The architectural competition for the new Chancellery was won by Berlin-based architects Axel Schultes and Charlotte Frank with a spectacular award-winning design which included the surrounding complex of buildings. The Chancellery ranks as among the most impressive structures in this new government quarter, and is the largest government headquarters in the world – eight times larger than Washington’s White House.
