Nouvel Tower #1
Another modern building on the banks of the Danube Canal is the newly constructed 75m high tower designed by French architect Jean Nouvel (click here for a photo I took last summer and here for a video about the building). It houses not only the luxury hotel Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom, but also restaurants, a bar and a design shopping center. In this photo you can see the entrance of the hotel and a colourful ceiling painting by Swiss artist Pipilotti Rist.
