Goseriede 9, Hanover

Three years after the completion of the Chilehaus in Hamburg Fritz Höger planned the high-rise in Hanover, also built in the brick expres­sionist style, as a publi­shing building for the Hannoverscher Anzeiger. Since 1928, the Anzeiger high-rise, centrally located on Steintor-Platz, has shaped the skyline of the city of Hanover.

With its detailed facade relief of vividly protruding clinker bricks and the striking twelve-meter-high dome, it is one of the most important buildings of the 1920s in Germany. The 51-meter-high steel skeleton structure is clad with dark red and partially gold-glazed Bockhorn clinker bricks.

The facade is charac­te­rized by wedge-shaped projecting pillars. The upper end of each of the stepped entrance arches is formed by a light fixture, which continues into the interior of the building.

The copper-clad dome shell is woven from a network of steel strips and finally sprayed with concrete on both sides. The hall under the dome was used as a plane­tarium, event venue and movie stage.

When the building was completed, the building housed the publi­shing offices, the editorial office and the print shop of the Hannoverscher Anzeiger.

The complex survived the Second World War with compa­ra­tively little damage, despite the heavy destruction of the city center of Hanover. During one of the last air raids on March 25, 1945, the dome burned out.

After the war, the Spiegel (1947) and Stern (1948) magazines were estab­lished here. Today, the Anzeiger high-rise is part of the Hanover Media Center with several radio and television editorial offices.
