The Organizer: Daniel Kieckhefer
The SKYLINE ATLAS goes back to a project of Daniel Kieckhefer and Michael Wutzke, who are the main initiators of the information portal. The SKYLINE ATLAS is intended to inform the public about the dynamics of the Frankfurt skyline. In the meantime, other authors and creators have become part of the editorial team and the publication has developed an independence.
Daniel comes from Chicago and knows the high-rise architecture in Frankfurt because he spent many years there. He writes articles, is responsible for the organization, and especially oversees this English-language edition which often needs translations from the original German version.
“Frankfurt and Chicago are two special cities whose histories are linked.”
— Daniel Kieckhefer
