ThyssenKrupp AG is planning the ThyssenKrupp Quarter in Essen, to be built on an inner-city plot of approx. 15 hectares. Projected for a total of over 2,000 staff, it will constitute the new ThyssenKrupp Headquarters as well as other office and administrative buildings of the Group. Besides a multi-purpose building housing the ThyssenKrupp Academy, Conference Center and hotel, the project includes other uses with a total of approx. 100,000 sq m of gross-floor area (GFA). The ensemble is to be executed as an outstanding piece of innovative architecture.

The X-building first doesn't seem to fit in the Zaha Hadid model, but on the pictures further below it actually fits in. Zaha Hadid ftw!!!

Its got to be Zaha Hadid. The models look out of this world and Zaha Hadid has the capability of setting brand new standards internationally in architecture.

Zaha Hadid Buildings looks the most futuristic and cool, but I also like the Manfred&Nagel - I suppose it was designed to reflect the "Hochofenkultur" (Don't know an English Translation for that, the Iron Moloch of the Gigant Steel Mills shaping the Skyline)?

I especially like that so many Designs are including Water Basins, that makes for a really nice look.
