International Artists' Center 695, Frankfurt
From 1989-2004 at no. 695 Mainzer Landstraße in Frankfurt, Török transformed former greenhouses that were completely dilapidated into a place devoted to culture called “Internationales Künstlerzentrum 695”, i.e. International Artists’ Centre 695.

With its impressive architectural design, the building resembles a walk-in social sculpture encompassing about 2,400 cubic metres of space. It was the location of studios in which guest artists from Germany and abroad often worked next to the owner and Nina Stoelting, who is now his wife . In addition, it included a gallery for exhibitions that were organised several times a year usually with a programmatic link with other activities at the centre, especially with “Theater 695”, which was established at the same location. Interdisciplinary work, for example in conjunction with the design and execution of a large number of stage settings, was an integral element of the concept at No. 695.

The centre’s own theatre association staged six to eight productions a year that were performed on stage regularly and also encouraged theatre-goers to spend time at the adjacent centre.
