The New Premises of the European Central Bank - Der Neubau der Europäischen Zentralbank
An in-depth look at the innovative design and processes that went into the planning and construction of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt—one of the city’s most striking buildings.
Designed by the renowned architecture firm COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, the new European Central Bank (ECB) is one of Europe’s most exciting new structures. This informative and richly illustrated volume follows every phase of the building’s construction, from planning to completion. With extensive photos as well as interviews with the architects and engineers, the book explains the design concept of the office tower, the conversion of the historic Grossmarkthalle, and the creation of a modern, functional and energy-efficient headquarters for a modern central bank.
