Frankfurt am Main is the only German City that has a defining Skyline. The Commerzbank Tower in Frankfurt has been the highest building in Germany for almost 20 years. Frankfurt’s Skyscrapers are seen as one of the city’s landmarks. The Skyline keeps growing despite the more than 30 Skyscrapers with a height of over 100 m already existing. There are currently six new (residential) towers under construction and another seven are concretely planned. The Symposium illuminates the topic inter alia from the perspectives of city planning, the architects and land management. (July 11, 2016)
