»dizzy:eko:series» 1 – cover design

The first record in the “dizzy:eko:series” features the central building of the Commerzbank in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. It was designed by Norman Foster and has gained many merits. Usually it is shown surrounded by its colleague skyscrapers outnumbering them in height, beiing the splendid number one in the center (actually Commerzbank is number two in germany after swallowing Dresdner Bank in 2009, only Deutsche Bank is bigger). On its top there is a spectacular yellowish light installation taking place every night.

However, the cover is drawing a different image here. It doesn´t look like a friendly example from the corporate culture department. The building is twisted, it is wrapped in fog and a dark grey, ofter referred to as battleship-grey. It looks like a fortress, with its massive towers and triangular footprint. It seems to be very massive and tank-like and also shows a similarity to the spectacular concrete bunkers of the third reich. The project name “Bunker Hill” is being well reflected in the image. Volume two and three of the series will also feature examples of imperious architecture, see above 1,2,3 – Cover Design Preview.
