Part of photographer Andreas Gehrke’s powerful narrative series on dormant modernist buildings. Vacant work spaces that once hosted business enterprises playing a significant role in shaping the political, social and economic face of post-war Germany.

This is a pair of volumes that cover the former offices of Germany’s renowned organ of investigative journalism, Der Spiegel. The first book is about the Brandstwiete tower block in Hamburg by architect Werner Kallmorgen, which was home to the magazine from 1969–2011. The second book covers the Dovenfleet tower block in Hamburg, also by Kallmorgen. It was built in 1967 and housed part of the US technology and consulting giant IBM for 28 years before the Spiegel publishing group moved in between 1995 and 2011.
