Cologne Architecture – Introduction

Cologne (Köln in German) may be best known for its annual International art fair, but since the 1950ies architects have been busy reconstructing and creating a modern city according to Rudolf Schwartz’s post war urban plan.

Cologne has a wide range of contemporary architecture ranging from the Ludwig Museum by Busmann & Haberer and the Kolumba art museum by Peter Zumthor, to the Weltstadthaus by Renzo Piano for the Peek & Cloppenburg (photo below, it is actually a clothes shop), and more recently the Central Mosque by Paul Böhm.

Also the recent urban developments include the Rheinauhafen area displaying a well-balanced contrast between public places and individual new buildings. The three Kranhäuser (Teharani) have become a landmark on the Rhine-harbour front with some very fine examples of office buildings and domestic architecture surrounding it.

Apart from the famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom), the city has a impressive series of Romanesque churches, which are well worth visiting.

This is the largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia.
