The so-called "L’Or du Rhin" or "Centre for Art" was built between 1971 and 1974 by the Cuban architect, artist, sculptor and painter Ricardo Porro (1925-2014).
The architect was commissioned by the financier Robert Altmann to design offices together with a gallery. He wanted to combine his private collection of paintings with his offices. For this reason, Ricardo Porro, who had previously worked mainly in Cuba, designed the building in three parts. Offices were to be located on the ground floor, and these were available for letting to tenants. Large exhibition spaces were planned for the upper storeys, which at the same time served as the entrance hall to Robert Altmann's private offices. The concept behind the structure was that the building should reflect the image of the compact country of Liechtenstein. The project was designed to underscore the fact that Liechtenstein was one of the most important centres of the business world.
