    Neuer Zollhof, Dusseldorf

    The Neuer Zollhof (New Customs House) is such a fantastically outlandish piece of office architecture it has to be my favourite set of buildings in the whole city, and one of my all-time favourites. The imaginative work by world famous American architect Frank O. Gehry (Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao) is just so photogenic, and fits in perfectly with the other works of forward thinking architecture in the Media Harbour. The buildings themselves, three office towers even more crooked than the spire of St. Lambertus in Düsseldorf's Alte Stadt, are made of three different materials, with the central aluminium plated one being the most striking.

    Gehry's Neuer Zollhof

    These office buildings provide you with fantastic views. They are designed by US star architect Frank O. Gehry, as you can tell from their style. If you ask me it's Gehry at his best here - he built the Zollhof in three different materials - platinum, bricks and white. Plus the buildings are not as crazy as some of the other terrible things he built ;)

    Inside the white building there's a fancy bar - Meerbar - with high prices, good fish dishes, a celebrity factor and wonderful outdoor seating. Underneath the buildings there's a garage where you can park your car for cheap in the evenings. That's about all you can do with the Zollhof buildings, apart from looking at them and taking a picture of course.

    One of the three Gehry buildings

    From the Rheinturm we made our way to the Neuer Zollhof. This is where you will find the three buildings designed by architect Gehry. The buildings all look different and weird too, or interesting as some would say. These strange buildings provided a perfect background for a group picture.
