The Rhine Tower in Düsseldorf represents the link between the city and the harbor area and is located directly at the Rhine promenade. The design provides a light, floating construction that conveys maritime flair. The membranes of the new construction can be used for projections, light displays or announcements. The structure, made from varnished steel and the sail fabric, will be fully recyclable. Prefabrication, low weight and simplicity will guarantee short construction time, low CO2 emissions at very low costs.
