Grand Central Frankfurt Competition: shortlist

The task was to design a mixed-use quarter between Hafenstraße and Adam-Riese-Straße, which is within walking distance of Frankfurt's main railway station. What was needed was a solution that would integrate the existing former post office tower into an ensemble of buildings. 600 apartments are to be comprised in a 140 m high residential tower and a 60 m high neighbouring building. Our design envisaged a finely balanced overall composition that interpreted the three skyscrapers as equal, independent and strong characters.
