In 1988, a masterplan was established to integrate the new-technology companies, which are replacing the old heavy industries of the Ruhr, within an established residential district of Duisburg in the Ruhr heartland. The masterplan created a landscaped public park and three new buildings: the Business Promotion Centre, Telematic Centre and the Microelectronic Centre, the largest building on the site. The project demonstrates how areas for living and working can coexist harmoniously. The seven-storey Business Promotion Centre is lens-shaped on plan with a steel roof curving down over its three terraced upper floors. At ground level, the entrance extends into a double-height banking and exhibition hall. The intermediate floors are a combination of cellular offices and meeting spaces, culminating in the grand internal three-storey terrace (text from website architect).
