This state-of-the-art power plant in Düsseldorf, designed by architecture firm kadawittfeldarchitektur, supplies the city with clean energy.

It also doubles as an observation tower, offering visitors unparalleled views of the area. Modular and cloaked in steel frames, the Lausward Power Plant acts as a tourist attraction with a lift taking visitors to its highest point called "City Window". The structure is not a simple power plant, but a landmark that dominates the southwestern boundary of the city. Thanks to its modular construction, the power plant can adjust to various functions. Its largest frame element envelops the existing smokestack-the highest point of the building complex.

Situated approximately 45 meters (148 feet) above ground level, a viewing platform offers views of the rest of the plant and the city center through a glass facade. The rhythm of the facade and the modular construction are best observed at night.
