Westhausen Cemetery Mourning Hall

After the AfE Tower was demolished and Historisches Museum and Technisches Rathaus both torn down, it is one of the last surviving brutalist buildings in Frankfurt/Main. The long wall that flanks the path of the mourners (designed by artist Otto Herbert Hajek) constitutes a large spanned beam. The folds of the roof also stand for the structural use of concrete, with sculptural additions only for the details.
