Reflexions and the U
Again the Dortmunder U, on my way to work. It's an impressiv building with this big video installation. In Dortmund nothing really is unique, exapt the U.
From Wikipedia: The Dortmund U-Tower is a brewery building in the city of Dortmund, Germany. It was the first skyscraper of Dortmund, built in 1926-1927. The high-rise Union Brewery used this building for the fermentation and storage of their products. In 1994 the brewery and all its surrounding buildings were closed and demolished, only the Dortmund U-Tower was spared due to having landmark status. In January 2008 the Dortmund U-Tower was decided to be redeveloped as a flagship project for the "Ruhr 2010 - Cultural Capital of Europe".
