Paradigma / central station area Frankfurt


The idea goes back to re-experience the central station quarter of Frankfurt/Main. A dynamic structure is chosen - according to strict criteria - to reinterpret the area. To assure an effective operation, the visual design involve the engineering design. So the area design depends on the material pre-election, too. View axis' allow face-to-face interaction as much as the conjoining bridges that interconnect the buildings.
