The new building in the East End is the seat of the European Central Bank (ECB). The building consists of three elements: the former wholesale market hall from 1928, a 185-meter high north tower and a 165-meter-high southern tower, which, together with an antenna on the northern tower, reach a total height of 201 meters. The double tower bears the name, ‘Skytower’ and was built in the deconstructivist style. From a distance, you have the feeling that the towers turn into each other, as if they cannot stand still.
The building was designed by the architect Wolf D. Prix (Coop Himmelb(l)au).
