Mercedes Office Village

The office-village masterplan is the result of collaboration between the three architects: Frank O, Gehry, Jean Nouvel, and OMA/ Rem Koolhaas.
This enterprise aims to provide an identifiable image for a site – an industrial fallow in the north of Dusseldorf – that, despite its strategic location- between the city centre and Dusseldorf Airport-, has not yet been succelful in attracting development. The particular nature of the enterprise –the collaboration between three distinctly different architects- consciously precludes both an overall formal principle and a large singular building development concept.
