neuer zollhof – also known as the gehry buildings- is an ensemble of three buildings: a white one, a red one and a -so typical for gehry- silver one made of stainless steel. they are located at medienhafen (media harbour), an urban renewal area in duesseldorf.
“The Rheinhafen centre of arts and the media by Frank O. Gehry (USA) consists of three contrasting building complexes and appears like a gigantic sculpture. The different materials chosen give each complex its own identity. The outer material of the central building reflects the buildings on its northern and southern side, thus creating a link between the three.
The Gehry buildings are considered Düsseldorf’s new landmark.”
