Revitalization of the Facade of the Commerzbank Tower in Düsseldorf. The Commerzbank Tower in Düsseldorf is one of the most important high-rise buildings of the early post-war modernism in the international style. The design has been particularly influenced by the elevated shell construction and the innovations in facade technology at the time. The listed high-rise building was built by Gartner between 1959 and 1962 and features an innovative aluminum facade. The facade units were first dismantled in Düsseldorf and carried to Gundelfingen to be disassembled, cleaned and revitalized. After remounting the elements on site, the base floor was completed by a slender all-glass facade with 6 m long glass fins. The design as well as the testing for an individual approval are explained in this paper.
