ThyssenKrupp Quartier, Essen, Germany

The ThyssenKrupp Quartier is an architectural representation of the corporate culture of this renowned conglomerate. Cosmopolitan and modern, innovative and sustainable. Connected by short paths and small squares, the buildings edge a central waterway. The heart of the piece is a striking cube. Campus architecture par excellence. The central design element is the principle of shell/core. All buildings consist of L-shaped structures which join around a shared centre. The fi nal result: a homogeneous architectural impression.
