Mannesmann House Dusseldorf
Also called Behrensbau after the name of the architect, to the left of the Mannesmann high-rise. Neoclassicism and reform architecture, built 1911-1912, registered as a monument in 1982. The main facade looks out onto the Rhine bank promenade. The Hephaistos relief above the main entrance was made by Eberhard Encke (1881-1936). Since 2015, the building has served to house refugees, then as an exhibition venue for a very worthwhile exhibition on the history of the state of NRW. Since 2022, it has been undergoing extensive renovation and will remain unused for the next few years.
