Frankfurter Chronik / Observations of old and new buildings - Frankfurt Main

 

Temporary stills of a city in change photographed in and around Frankfurt, Germany.

With a population of only 750.000 people Frankfurt is a rather small city. I terms of horizontal growth it has already reached it's capacities. The city is surrounded by a green belt, which is under landscape protection; a program enacted by the city government in 1991. Highways and EU's largest airport set further limitating factors. This means, that the existing neighborhoods, districts and buildings are exposed to the urban renewing forces even more.
