Messeturm- Frankfurt.01 by cc-Designs Messeturm- Frankfurt.01 by cc-Designs


This photo was taken during my trip to Frankfurt, Germany.

The Messeturm was the tallest building in Europe from its completion
in 1990 until 1997, when it was eclipsed by the Commerzbank Tower
also in Frankfurt, then in 2003 by the Triumph-Palace in Moscow.
Used as an office building, it is 257 metres (842 feet) tall and has 63 floors.

Its design is similar to the Bank of America Plaza in Atlanta.
Frankfurters often call it "The Pencil" due to its shape.

The tower uses numerous geometric shapes in its design such as the
square footprint which is the main shape used throughout the tower.
It then rises to a cylindrical shape which finally completes in a pyramid.

Wow.
I loved the way you centered the photo. It sounds simple, but most people never center photos that need to be centered.
Great colors!
