Essen Architecture

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Essen Building Developments, Nordrhein-Westfalen. We aim to include projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed Essen buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Nordrhein-Westfalen. The focus is on contemporary buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.
