The Main Tower in Frankfurt am Main, Germany was opened in January 2000 and with a height of 200 meters, it is the fourth highest building in Germany. In the core of the impressive facade of glass you find the 26 fastest elevators in the country, which transport people and goods with a speed of 25.2 km/h.
The Government District in Berlin, Germany on a rainy evening. I love the strict lines and the very modern and contemporary architectural style. The rain didn’t ruin the picture, instead it added depth to it.
The arena is located in the iconic district Eixample, where it fills the space of one entire block of houses. It actually was the last bullfighting arena in Catalonia that was commercially used. Today, it is still used for sport events or concerts and can fit up to 25,000 people. It was finished in 1916 and is strongly inspired by Byzantine architecture.
At the bottom of the famous Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia you find the KLCC (Kuala Lumpur City Centre) Park, which was designed by Roberto Burle Marx and is an absolute must-see when visiting the Malaysian capital. The park area measures about 20 hectares and offers many walkways, playgrounds and picnic areas, but its biggest attraction is the 10,000 m² big man-made lake, Lake Symphony with a 43 meter long bridge spanning across the water.
Daria fell in love with the facade of the building, which skilfully unites the architectural styles of the Gothic, Baroque and the Renaissance era. I used the deserted streets of Dubrovnik in the early morning hours to capture the Rector’s Palace in a way it might have been resting peacefully on the shiny pavement back in its days in the 16th century.
Nuremberg, the second largest city in Bavaria, is known as the cultural and economic capital in Franconia and one of the most important cities in all of Germany. Because of its picturesque Old City with a great number of historic buildings, Nuremberg is always worth a visit. The picture was taken at the bottom of the famous Nuremberg Castle – its hall is visible in the background.
As I have mentioned before, there is hardly anything more exciting to me than watching a city wake up in the early hours of the morning. Especially when the city is so close to my heart, like the capital city of the Czech Republic – Prague. The image shows the Charles Bridge, one of the oldest stone bridges in Europe, which sprawls over the river Vitava in the middle of the Golden City. It connects the Old City with the Mala Strana with a total length of about 516 meters.
The palace is built on foundation walls of a tower house, which dates back to the Moorish Kingdom in the 9th century. The original building has been expanded and altered many times since its establishment during the Taifa Kingdom in 1065. Especially after the recapture by the catholic kings in 1118 its design was remarkably influenced by the immigrating Muslims and their renowned Mudejar style.
This picture of the L’Hemisfèric in the Spanish city of Valencia, is a picture I could look at for hours. The unique architecture offers so much detail without losing its minimalist character that you just never grow tired of looking at it. This very impressive building was designed by Santiago Calatrava and was opened as the first building within the City of Arts and Sciences on 16th April 1998.
Wrocław has one of the biggest market squares in Europe and its city hall is the biggest one in Poland. Late at night the city wraps itself in silence and is only disturbed now and again by the hushed voices of people returning home from a night out. I wanted to capture the intriguing atmosphere of this place, but also show as much as possible of this very beautiful market square painted in the crisp autumn light at night.
