The Dreischeibenhaus (also known as the Dreischeibenhochhaus) is a 95 metre office building in August-Thyssen-Straße in the Hofgarten district of the Düsseldorf city centre. It was also known as the Thyssen-Haus or Thyssen-Hochhaus owing to its former use as the headquarters of the Thyssen and ThyssenKrupp groups. It is among the most significant examples of post-war modernist International style and is a symbol of the so-called Wirtschaftswunder, or ‘economic miracle’ of post-war Germany and provides a contrast to the neighbouring Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus on Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz. Dreischeibenhaus, The “Three Plates Building” (a rough translation of its name in German), was one of Germany’s first skyscrapers to be completed after WW2.
