The Innenstadt is the central district of Frankfurt am Main, Germany. It is part of the Ortsbezirk Innenstadt I, and is subdivided into 5 Stadtbezirke. It stretches in the north and east round the district of Altstadt. Other adjacent districts to the west are Bahnhofsviertel, in the north west the Westend, Nordend to the north and Ostend to the east. In the south, the Innenstadt is bordered naturally by the Main on the opposite bank of which stands the Applewine quarter known as Sachsenhausen. The Innenstadt and Altstadt were formed within the borders made up of the anlage (stretches of grassy park land) lying to the right of the Main and are thereby clearly recognisable on the city plan. The enclosures of park land of a contrast to the skyscrapers and the banking quarter. The Zeil, Frankfurt's most famous street, as well as the central squares Hauptwache and Konstablerwache, can be found in the Innenstadt. On the Fressgass the bankers and office workers from the nearby office blocks have lunch.

For many years it required a lot of courage to reveal oneself elsewhere as a native of Frankfurt. The metropolis was considered one of Germany's more unattractive addresses, boring and impersonal.At that time, its quality of life showed itself only, if at all, to the city's subculture. The famous shopping mile Zeil was a bare row of department stores having the charm of containers and Frankfurt's nightlife consisted of the dreary red-light district around the central station. If the city drew any attention it was because of demonstrations and riots.All long gone. Designers have displaced demonstrators, street festivals sit-ins: The city, once infamous for being sick and smelly (it has been called Krankfurt and Gestankfurt, literally meaning ill-furt and stink-furt), has been refurbished and refurnished in postmodern design.With the highest cultural budget of all German cities the municipality bought during the wealthy 80s and 90s everything that promised urban flair and city chic: art, culture and big names. By now, the banking metropolis is, apart from some peripheral regions and neighbourhoods, top stylish and luxuriously modernised.The wallflower, it would seem, has become a bird of paradise and the wind beneath its wings is an invigorating Frankfurt lifestyle.The heart of the city, the historical Römer, with its historicised reproductions of half-timbered houses has long been the natives' favourite plaza and the tourists' most popular photo motive. All the prolific cultural attractions in Frankfurt - the Museumsufer across the river, the Alte Oper with the imposing Lucae Fountain, the postmodern Kunsthalle Schirn and the Museum of Modern Art by the Viennese Star architect Hans Hollein - have richly rewarded its residents for the many years of reconstruction and modernisation.Now Frankfurt is the envy of many visitors - its striking skyline, attractive art exhibitions and impressive museum mansions on the banks of the Main. But even if the rents have soared to astronomical heights and stylish Mainhattan hardly misses a beat when it comes to superlatives, the metropolis has always kept its provincial heart in the right place, it is still more a country town than a capital city - a look in the local section of the city papers will convince anyone.It's exactly this mixture that accounts for the new charm of today's Frankfurt: the contrast between megalomania and village idyll, the latent chaos of urban chic and lively side-by-side of many different cultures and lifestyles that is based on a long and liberal tradition of business and tolerance.

Schon beim ersten Eintauchen in Chassots Architekturfotografie badet das Auge in einer Fülle von Szenen aus dem Repertoire herausragender, internationaler Gegenwartsarchitektur. Jedes dieser Fotos trifft ein prototypisches Motiv. Farbgebung, Linienführung, Lichtregie - die fotografischen Mittel sind bei jedem Bild so präzise eingesetzt, dass der Betrachter sich in ein visuelles Labor versetzt fühlt, in dem Fotografie Architektur in ihrer Sprache interpretiert. Der Autor Wolfgang Meisenheimer spürt im Text den Grundlagen von Chassots fotografischem Weltbild nach und unterscheidet drei Schichten des Denkens, in denen das Werk wurzelt: die euklidischen Ordnungen, die Orientierung an der modernen Leib-Philosophie und das Erbe des Kubismus aus den Anfängen der modernen Malerei.Architekten und BautenFrank Gehry Guggenheim Museum Bilbao SpanienFrank Gehry Neuer Zollhof Düsseldorf DeutschlandFrank Gehry Vitra Center Basel-Birsfelden SchweizFrank Gehry Vitra Design Museum Weil am Rhein DeutschlandAtelier WW City Bernina Zürich-Oerlikon Schweizsop Architekten Hotel Hyatt Regency Düsseldorf DeutschlandJean Nouvel Hôtel de Ville Montpellier FrankreichEnrique de Teresa Torre del Agua Saragossa SpanienVehovar Jauslin Busterminal Aarau SchweizMassimiliano & Doriana Fuksas Georges-Frèche Hotelfachschule Montpellier FrankreichMassimiliano & Doriana Fuksas "My Zeil" Einkaufszentrum Frankfurt DeutschlandMassimiliano & Doriana Fuksas Armani Fifth Avenue New York USANorman Foster 7 more London Riverside London GrossbritannienNorman Foster 30 St Mary Axe "The Gherkin" London GrossbritannienDaniel Libeskind Zentralgebäude Leuphana Universität Lüneburg DeutschlandDaniel Libeskind Westside Einkaufs- und Freizeitzentrum Bern SchweizZaha Hadid Pierres vives Montpellier FrankreichZaha Hadid Learning and Library Center Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien ÖsterreichZaha Hadid Roca London Gallery London GrossbritannienCoop Himmelb(l)au I Trias Fussgängerbrücke BMW Welt München DeutschlandKarl Schwanzer BMW Hochhaus und Museum München DeutschlandCoop Himmelb(l)au I Trias Fussgängerbrücke BMW Welt München DeutschlandCoop Himmelb(l)au Doppelkegel BMW Welt München DeutschlandRolf Gnädinger Otto Bock Science Center Medizintechnik Berlin DeutschlandEgon Konrad U-Bahnhof Candidplatz München DeutschlandAuer + Weber + Assoziierte U-Bahnhof Westfriedhof München DeutschlandHerzog & de Meuron Neue Messe Basel SchweizHerzog & de Meuron Kunsthaus Aarau SchweizHerzog & de Meuron Actelion Business Center Allschwil SchweizHerzog & de Meuron VitraHaus Weil am Rhein DeutschlandHerzog & de Meuron Elbphilharmonie Hamburg DeutschlandSchneider + Schumacher Autobahnkirche Siegerland Wilnsdorf DeutschlandSantiago Calatrava Lyon-Saint-Exupéry Airport Railway Station FrankreichSantiago Calatrava Bibliothek des Rechtswissenschaftlichen Instituts der Universität Zürich SchweizSantiago Calatrava Bahnhof Liège-Guillemins BelgienSantiago Calatrava Bahnhof Reggio nell'Emilia ItalienSantiago Calatrava Oculus World Trade Center Transportation Hub New York USAMario Botta Chiesa di San Giovanni Battista Mogno SchweizMario Botta Capella Santa Maria degli Angeli Monte Tamaro SchweizMario Botta Chiesa del Santa Volto Turin ItalienMario Botta Centro pastorale Giovanni XXIII Seriate ItalienMario Botta Alterswohnsiedlung Novazzano ItalienP.
