May 20, 2010

Coop Himmelb(l)au European Central Bank FrankfurtThe groundbreaking of Coop Himmelb(l)au’s new premises of the European Central Bank has been celebrated yesterday in attendance of Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the European Central Bank, Petra Roth, Mayor of the City of Frankfurt, Wolf D.
