Norddeutsche Landesbank in Hannover

Above is one piece of an exercise I did in 2006 using photos of the Norddeutsche Landesbank in Germany. My graphic design skills have improved a lot since then. Memories of the building, the exercise, and the place made me happy… so I thought I’d post it.

The Norddeutsche Landesbank by Behnisch Architekten,building was completed in 2002, on Hannover’s Friedrichswall, a street connecting the city centre with residential neighbourhoods to the south. The building measures a total of 40,000 square metres and provides office space for a staff of about 1,500. It starts out as a regular platform, from which a seventeen-storey building rises about seventy metres into the air, divided into horizontal blocks set at different angles. A light coat of steel cables and glass covers the projecting parts of the building: a “stretched flexible structure” of the kind normally used in suspended roofs, capable of resisting tensile stress.
