The Deutsche Bundesbank is in the process of modernising its Central Office in Frankfurt am Main, completely refurbishing the striking main building, which dates from 1972. Additional office buildings are being constructed on site to make room for all members of staff belonging to the
Central Office in Frankfurt. In 2018, the Bundesbank commissioned the development of a design concept for the future campus through a Europewide tender process. The Bundesbank’s Executive Board chose the concept submitted by the Frankfurt-based architecture firm Ferdinand Heide for
its skilful mixture of modernity, functionality, clarity and sustainability. In summer 2019, an international architectural competition was launched based on this concept. The exhibition shows all design proposals submitted as part of the competition, including the winning designs. When it comes to constructing the various new buildings, it is possible that several designs will be combined.
