Pier One, Building Bridges in the Port of Düsseldorf
Pier One is a spectacular new building in Düsseldorf’s harbour. The building sits above the water, supported on 180 piles. Another special feature that will change the port forever: radiating from Pier One are four new slender bridges, which connect Speditionsstrasse, Kesselstrasse, and Weizenmühlenstrasse. This creates both a new transit route and a new public space on the water – emblematic for the harbour’s transformation in recent decades and a catalyst of further development. The concept and design are by ingenhoven architects. Construction is planned to begin in 2021.
