modern frankfurt

Frankfurt is a city with a mixture of modern and historic buildings woven into the urban fabric. Pummelled by WW2 the city has re birthed with modern architectural buildings of a very high standard of design.

Below are images of some of these buildings I stumbled upon last week, including Studio Fuksas designed, My Zeil shopping mall and it’s stunning amorphic glass spine.

Massimiliano Fuksas is a Roman architect also famous for the New Trade Fair building in Milano.
