Underground railway station, parliament building, Berlin

What the BVG (Berliner Verkehrsbetriebsgesellschaft) has to say:
"The shell construction of the underground railway station at the parliament building was designed by the architect Axel Schulte, who also designed the federal chancellor's offices. It is therefore not a coincidence that the architectural style and the materials used for the two constructions are very similar.
The underground railway station is located between the chancellor's offices and the parliament building in a bend of the river Spree; it comprises a 3000 m² underground hall with a height of 8 metres. This hall is divided into separate areas by means of asymmetrically arranged columns. The entire underground railway station was constructed from polished, exposed concrete. There will be no wall panelling or other embellishments." 
Here, too, we enhanced the effect of the "polished, exposed concrete". . .
