Tower 185 Frankfurt am Main
Tower 185 consists of a horseshoe-shaped main building with a natural stone facade. From this foundation, two high-rise halves ascend with an aluminium-glass facade which is enclosed with a glazed central part. Together they form the actual tower. The architecture is from the Frankfurt office of Prof. Christoph Mäckler Architects. The use of forms comes from Mäckler´s understanding of a rematerialised modern age, they stand equally for timeless elegance and the sustainable use of resources which are more and more scare.
