Gehry Tower is a nine-storey building designed by architect Frank Gehry; it is located at the Steintor, Goethestra▀e 13a, in Hannover, Germany. The building was commissioned by the city-owned Hanover Transport Service, for whom Gehry also designed a bus stop in the city. Constructed of stainless steel, the tower is memorable for the noticeable twist in its outer fašade on a ferroconcrete core, making optimal use of the relatively small piece of ground on which it is located. Like many of Gehry's buildings, the tower was created with the most modern technology available at the time. Gehry's office first created a 1:100 model, which was then scanned and imported into CAD software to be able to compute the dimensions for the individual parts, all of which vary in size and shape (text from Wikipedia).
