In 1996, Wansleben Architekten initiated in cooperation with developer BTV a concept for a Creative Centre in the commercial harbour of Düsseldorf. The proposed Port-Event-Center (PEC) is a complex knot comprising of a tower as an end of the 'mediawalk' and a 35m cantilevered office unit over a highly soundproof event space. It protrudes over the protected former powerstation as a reaction to the perspective of the harbour basin. The 'media-port' should be supplemented by a centre for culture and music. Individual treatment of the different spatial dynamics and directions is done as usual in older parts of the harbour by an uncomplicated but complex arrangement of unpretentious buildings which in appearance and function are achitectually independent. This is a roboust, non-hierarchical urban structure that is capable of being changed and developed with minimum coordination. Since 2002 it has been rented by O'Gilvy & Mather Advertising Agency and 3001 Discotheque.
