From the Inside Flap
At 56 stories and just under 1,000 feet, the Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt is Germany's tallest building and the second tallest in the European Union. This sleek and beautifully designed book explores every aspect of Norman Foster's pioneering project--from the central spiraling atrium, which allows for natural light and ventilation, to the outside gardens that give the building a sense of airiness and transparency. One of Foster + Partners' most influential projects, the Commerzbank Tower wields a low impact on the environment while offering its immediate neighborhood an attractive site for social and cultural events.
