With the DC Tower 1, the French architect Dominique Perrault has created a new landmark for Vienna. Located directly on the Danube, the narrow tower, visible from a great distance, ensures a stronger connection between the younger districts and the traditional city center. At the same time, it moves Vienna closer to the water. Austrian artist Markus Krottendorfer has captured its elegant, versatile appearance and the highly complex technological inner life in a photographic essay, highlighting the many exceptional facets of the building. The history of the origins and vision of this project, which has also been important in terms of urban development, are at the center of two discussions lead by Austrian architect journalist Christian Kuhn with Dominique Perrault and real estate developer Thomas Jakoubek.

The cloth-bound hardcover has a format of 26,5 x 33 cm and 156 pages with 56 color images, which were taken between 2014 and 2017.
