175. Mainz. Panorama Rheinufer mit Dom und Rathaus


Dear Silke,

Here is a beautiful view with the Town Hall of Mainz
designed by Arne Jacobsen and built in 1973. The
geometrical rigor of the building floor plan is strongly
influenced by the architecture of Louis Kahn. The new
building mass works as an interesting counterbalance
to that of the city's cathedral.

Regards.
R
