We had the privilege of working with the Federal Foreign Office on various occasions before: In Beijing, Mexico City, Washington D.C. and, of course, in the context of #BuildingBridges. August 17, 2019 was a special day for us because we were invited to the Foreign Office's Open Day in Berlin. Not only were we to set up and walk a Highline, which was attached to the flagpole of the roof terrace of Foreign Minister Heikeo Maas. We also presented our #BuildingBridges films to the public for the first time.
