The courtyards constitute an interzone between public space and the admini- strative spaces of the Bundestag. Mehr Licht is a representative sculpture in this interstitial space. A decorative element of salons, foyers, or convention halls chandeliers take self-conscious advantage of the opulent availability of space; this chandelier is assembled from conventional streetlights agglomerated into an elegantly luminous object. The endowment of the parliamentary space with public furniture recurs to the communal, shared responsibility within and for public space.
