The vast office programme of the European Central Bank is organized as a 150 meter high tower with an inner void space. Within this spatial organisation itís possible to create a sculptural volume with several large interior public spaces and a skyline silhouette of differentiated tower volumes. The tower is situated between the Main river embankment and the former wholesale market building that takes all sport- and leisure facilities of the organisation. The building stands in a large waterpond that is created as a landscape element as well as a security barrier.
