Fascination Gratte-ciel - L’Étoile de Sendling, Munich, by Joachim Haupt and Sabine Pollmeier, traces the history of this exceptional building. On March 22, 2012, the new head office of the German automobile club ADAC was inaugurated in Sendling, a neighbourhood located near Munich’s historic centre. Architects at Berlin-based Sauerbruch Hutton, one of Germany’s most innovative architectural firms, designed this 93-metre tower and its star-shaped base. Behind its multicoloured facades are offices bathed in light, with a view of the Alps.
