Architectural highlight of the future Mall and Entertainment Center in the city centre of Frankfurt is its amorphous roof landscape which reminds of the formative conception of a Canyon. It covers the complete Building complex.
The triangular structure of the roof penetrates the building inside, through light openings, and forms itself finally in the ground floor as a well-lit tunnel.
Inside fluid shaped spaces offer interesting view relations at all levels of the building. The daylight penetrates into the lower floors and creates a daylight-lit ambience.
The fully glazed main facade continues the organically formed steel-glass roof and allows the pedestrians a view through the building into the sky by an inward trumpet formed deformation.
A 45m long express-escalator connects the street level directly with a Piazza in the 4th floor containing catering and the accesses to the areas of Fitness, Wellness and Kidsworld above.
The basic idea of the shopping mall is to create a vertical city by physical and visual connections inside the building, an urban shooping street with a new element – verticality.
