Lufthansa's new headquarters is located appropriately enough next to Frankfurt airport,and every two minutes a plane flies over the building during take-off. Frankfurt airport is the main hub of Germany's biggest carrier,and the Lufthansa Aviation Center provides office space for some 1800 employees. But the building isn't intended to be a mere administrative center - it's also meant to give architectural expression to the fascination of flying. The design commissioned by Lufthansa looks like a giant hangar on the outside with a wavelike roof inspired by wing design. The company hopes the structure will give it an architectural legacy.
