Yesterday we have had our monthly photographers roundtable. We met in our state capitol, Düsseldorf and visited the Media Harbour, a former trade and custom harbor. A few years ago, this area was renewed and the premises were then used by media agencies, film companies and advertising agencies. That’s the reason for the name “Media Harbour”. Many new buildings with steel and glass fronts were set up, but some of the old buildings are still in place. You can also find here the Dancing Houses, three buildings made by the famous architect Frank Gehry.
We were gifted by fantastic pre-spring weather. Thus, many people were in the streets enjoying the sun and the warmth.

That’s truly amazing and beautiful! Isn’t Düsseldord the Art Capital of Germany? It’s on our list of places to visit. Fantastic slide show. Thank you for sharing.
When thinking on art, first Munich would come to my mind. Next is Kassel, the city of Documenta. Düsseldorf is connected to Fashion and, just like Munich, to wealthy people living there. And little Tokio 🙂
Thank you for the explanation. That’s very helpful.

I love the architecture in these pictures!
yeah, these houses are crazy.
And, Frank Gehry, the architect must be very crazy (in a positive meaning) to create such buildings.
Thanks, Valerie, four your comment!
