Congrats to Coop-Himmelb(l)au

On Nov. 1,  Wolf D. Prix – design principal and CEO of Coop-Himmelb(l)au – will be awarded the prestigious Hessian Culture Prize for the Vienna-based firm’s design of the new European Central Bank (ECB) in Frankfurt.

A prize of €45,000 has been awarded annually since 1982, following the cabinet decision of the German state government of Hesse for outstanding achievements in the fields of art, science, and culture.

“With the new European Central Bank, Coop-Himmelb(l)au creates a new, modern landmark for Frankfurt,” says the 11-member Board of Trustees established under Prime Minister Volker Bouffier (CDU).
