The City of Frankfurt am Main (Germany) and the DekaBank are jointly holding The International Highrise Award 2004.

From the building of the tower of Babel through to the present, highrises have remained a fascinating symbol of mankindís technological and cultural achievements. The world over, highrises are an indispensable and trailblazing element in town planning. For developers, tall buildings have a strong representational status.
