City Hall

Böhm adds a concrete castle to the historic Bensberger castle. It even features a turret that houses the stairs and an elevator shaft. As in Neviges, the concrete is interpreted here as a rock and “second nature”. It is conceivable that the edifice also reveals an architect wrestling with the experience of the ruins left by the war.
