Highlight Towers

The Munich Highlight Business Towers ensemble consists of two highrise buildings with a height of 126 and 109 m respectively. Both buildings have a length of 80 m and a width of 14 m. The two buildings are statically independent of each other. The footbridges linking the ensemble are a clip-on construction that can be removed or added later on without any adaption of the loadbearing structure being necessary.
