well, at least it will have solarreflectors in it, to heat the buildings water, and windows that can be opened, so i think it will have an impact on its look... hopefully not too bad..

windows that can be opened? In a skyscraper? Damn I hate that, it ruins perfect lines and symmetry. Nothing wrong with airconditioning.

Render - Refacade of Deutsche Bank Towers

^ I second that.

By the by, someone of the DAF scanned a render of the refacaded towers (which derives from the FAZ). It shows how it's going to look with openable windows:



For comparison - the current look of the twin towers:





Not quite a good decision if u ask me

well, i think it could really be much worse then this... i question myself if there are only so few openable windows, or didn`t they want to show a render with all/most windows opened?

To be honest, I'm not really surprised. I find many German's hate air conditioning. We have it in our office, and even on the hottest, most humid of days, many staff will switch it off and prefer to sweat - usually claiming it's so "unnatural" or something along those lines.

Heating in winter is also unnatural... I still like both.

Doesn't surprise me that you think like that. Here in Australia people seem to love their AC. Always way too cold in buildings.

The Henninger Turm photo is dead. Anyone know the latest on this, what it will look like and when it will be complete?

Deutsche Bank modification, refacading

Some high quality renderings to find at the DAF - of the upcoming modification of the Deutsche Bank twin towers. They show the exchanged glass facade and the new lobby, which is going to include a 'Public Art Café'.

Henninger Turm renderings look awful. Crappy architecture (hope the architecture isn't fixed yet) and crappy buildings around the tower. No highrises in Sachsenhausen please!

The Henninger Turm is the worst. They should tear it down. Looks horrible and wastes the skyline view.
