    These towers are crooked, crooked, twisted and interlaced, and yet - or perhaps because of this - they can no longer imagine Düsseldorf's port. Many locals call it the modern landmark of the state capital. A short trip to the future!

    In early 1990, a competition for a new building on the site of the abolished Customs Court was tendered, the Zaha Hadid won although their "deconstructive design" [2] but finally was not executed.
    From 1996 to 1998, three deconstructionist buildings were built instead to designs by Frank Gehry and Beucker, Maschlanka and partners. The three buildings show neither cornices nor sockets. [4] Striking is the curvature of the facade with a "flowing [und], wavy surface". [4] [5] The division into three buildings and the clearance of pedestrian gaps was owed to the project, the goal for the adjoining residential district access to the port to keep clear.

    Belongs to the most photographed sights in Dusseldorf.
    The dazzling façade deceives about structural defects and high vacancy.

    Wonderful photo opportunity with not even bad restaurants nearby. Also to the cinema it is not far and in the old town buses and trams go. But you could also walk behind the houses along the Rhine in the direction of the old town.

    It all looks somehow, as if the architect planned the planning for a bottle of vodka ;-)

    The Gehry buildings in the Medienhafen are among the most photographed sights in Düsseldorf.

    Great architecture. It is definitely worth taking an architectural tour - every Saturday

    The calculation and construction of the almost 1,600 windows in the three buildings were extremely complex. Gehry's idea of putting every window in a box to compensate for the different inclinations and angles was impressively simple - but not so easy to implement. The variety of shapes of the outer walls required extremely detailed designs. As it finally turned out, 1531 individual window boxes had to be designed, manufactured and installed.

    The crooked facades of the Gehry buildings (Canadian-American architect), which were completed in 1999, are striking and impressive. White plaster, red brick and the reflective facade of the middle building as well as the lack of symmetry fascinate the eye and provide beautiful photo motifs.

    The new Zollhof with its extroverted design stands as a symbolic building for the structural change from the old customs port to the media port. Architect: Frank Gehry. Year of construction: 1999
