The Editor-in-Chief: Michael Wutzke

SKYLINE ATLAS goes back to the initiator Michael Wutzke. SKYLINE ATLAS is a project with which Michael originally wanted to express his passion for Frankfurt and the skyline on his own. But in the meantime other authors and creative people joined the editorial team.

Michael Wutzke has been intensively involved in real estate research and programming for more than 20 years. With SKYLINE ATLAS, Mr. Wutzke voluntarily opens his archive to make knowledge about the Frankfurt skyline accessible to everyone free of charge.
