Abstract (in English)

In the early seventies the effect of the modern movement in architecture on historical cities became evident. Since then a rapid reorientation has started towards the possibilities of inserting new buildings into a historical context -the preservation of the city features had taken priority. Two of the focal points of municipal building activities in Frankfurt during the late seventies and the eighties had been the area of the historical city, delimited by the former city ramparts, and the embankments of the river Main.
