The DomRömer Quarter in the heart of the old town of Frankfurt, Germany, has received a new breath of life after the controversial Technical City Hall building was pulled down some years ago, and the entire quarter reconstructed in the style of the pre-war architecture.

The historical city center with its beautiful timber-framed buildings was destroyed by RAF bombing during the Second World War. When this quarter was rebuild in the 1950s, the charm of the old alleyways, romantic squares, and picturesque courtyards was lost to modern brutalism, although some effort was made to preserve the historic look, such as the Römer city hall whose old façade was left standing and a modern office building built behind it. When the Technical City Hall with its grey concrete walls rose in the 1970s, there was much public bitterness.
