I like the exterior, but like the interior much more!

its islamic luxury architecture at its best, though i do agree it doesn't suit the actual purpose of the building which is a embassy.

Well, UAE Embassy's mission is to protect UAE's interests in Germany and of its nationals. Also, to represent UAE to the german people. Embassy will help UAE and Germany's relations. LoL i know u dont wanna hear this crap.. :p

^ obviously that is what an embassy supposed to do.

but I do think that their main reason is to show off.

It is not like the american embassy in Baghdad to control Iraq. We dont do that

I would say that this is the only reason....
Nearly every embassy in Berlin is an architectural highlight so it was clear that the UAE's don't want to miss the train... and they did a good jon IMO It's one of the best embassies in Berlin.
