Six shortlisted practices have been selected in a closed competition to design the new Porsche Design Tower Frankfurt. The firms were chosen from a longlist of 20 participants and a winner will be announced in early 2015. The shortlisted design studios are as follows:
Stefano Boeri Architetti
Delugan Meissl Associated Architects
Neutelings Riedijk Architects
The site in Frankfurt am Main is located in close proximity to the city centre in the European Quarter. This location is already populated with restaurants, shops, hotels, schools, and public transport links, and the specific site is adjacent to the Emser Brücke, with a link to Boulevard Mitte.
