The Initiator: Michael Wutzke

The SKYLINE ATLAS goes back to Michael Wutzke as the initiator of the information portal. The English version was maintained by Daniel Kieckhefer for a long time. The SKYLINE ATLAS is intended to inform the public about the dynamics of the Frankfurt skyline. In the meantime, other authors and creatives have become part of the editorial team and the publication has developed an independence. Since summer 2021, Dean Vukovic has been the Managing Director and driving force behind further developments.

Michael has been programming computer systems since his youth. Today he works as an IT expert in the Frankfurt finance industry and is implementing successful digital solutions in this role. Writing about the architecture in Frankfurt and the commitment to the region are just a passion of him.
