Euro­pean Cen­tral Bank in Frankfurt on the Main

Architect: Coop Himmelb(l)au

The Euro­pean Cen­tral Bank (ECB) erected their new building on the grounds of the former market hall in Frankfurt on the Main. Desi­gned by the Vienna architects COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, the new headquar­ters of the ECB con­sist of three major structural ele­ments: the former market hall with its rebuilt inte­rior, 185 m high twin office towers enclo­sing an atrium with their entire height, and a so-called entrance con­struc­tion. The entrance building connects the twin towers visually and func­tio­nally with the market hall and rep­res­ents the main entrance in the North of the building complex. It also accom­mo­dates the press con­ference area. The ancient market hall whose funda­mental appearance has been mai­n­tained serves for the public func­tions of the ECB such as lobby, visi­tors centre, con­ference area, library and staff restau­rant. The gross floor area is approxima­tely 185,000 m2.
