media harbour of Düsseldorf

If you want to see what’s happening in today’s architecture, Düsseldorf’s MediaHarbor is the place for you. Against a historical backdrop, you’ll find contemporary works of the German and international star architects who have given the MediaHarbor in Düsseldorf its international reputation.

The area has become a destination for architectural tourism, with groups of fascinated visitors gravitating to the highlights – especially to Frank O. Gehry’s Leaning Towers. The New York Times posed the question: “Why weren’t these towers built in New York?”
