Description

The Dreischeibenhaus is a 95-metre office building in August-Thyssen-Straße in the Hofgarten district of the Düsseldorf city centre. It was also known as the Thyssenhaus or Thyssen-Hochhaus owing to its former use as the headquarters of the Thyssen and ThyssenKrupp groups. It is among the most significant examples of post-war modernist International style and a symbol of the so-called Wirtschaftswunder, or 'economic miracle' of post-war Germany, and contrasts with the neighbouring Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus on Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz. Dreischeibenhaus, The "Three Plates Building", was one of the first skyscrapers to be completed in Germany after WW2.After a complete renovation under the direction of Düsseldorf HPP Architects, the skyscraper offers 35,000 m² of gross floor area.Further reading Heike Werner: Architektur und Geschichte in Deutschland.
