When the German Embassy in Washington was completed in 1964, the architectural critic of the Washington Post wrote that the express aim of those commissioning the building had been to make an architectural statement that would embody the spirit of the young German democracy and avoid any form that could revive grim memories of the past. The paper felt that it had been right to engage Egon Eiermann for this project, as he had already solved the same problem of ”architectural diplomacy“ with his German Pavilion for the Brussels World Fair in 1958.
