1110 - dancing towers

setup: sony nex 7 with sel 50 f1.8 | 50mm | f5.6 | ISO100 | 1/60 | lightroom 4.2

during my visit in hamburg this week i absolutely wanted to take a look at the new highrises that were built at the eastern end of the reeperbahn since i left hamburg in 2009. in 2012 the workings are finally ended now and the buildings are already used by the economy.

the tower project was designed by the architect hadi teherani and includes two buildings that are 75 and 85 meters high and host 24 floors each. the strange naming arises from the supposed similarities between the two different high towers and a couple that is dancing the tango. the reeperbahn is considered as the most sinful mile all over the world and has a long tradition as a party quarter with a certain mess - for that reason its inhabitants slash the clean, sterile and straight towers since the project was initially introduced years ago. now it's over and how shall i put it?

they please me.
