modern architecture


Berger Allee 9, 40213 Düsseldorf

The courage to build with progressive architecture was already noticeable in Düsseldorf at the beginning of the 20th century.

In 1910 Peter Behrens won the tender for the construction of an administration building of Mannesmannröhren-Werke AG. Behrens, in whose Berlin office Walter Gropius, Mies van der Rohe, and Le Corbusier collaborated, had presented a draft that, although still attributable to reform architecture, already anticipated the New objectivity trend. Since the mid-1950s, the building, which is also known as Behrensbau, is flanked by another architectural highlight, the Mannesmann skyscraper.
