• Neubau Forschungsgebäude UFZ Leipzig - DGI Bauwerk

CENTRE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH UFZ, LEIPZIG

The UFZ is a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres and the first large-scale research institution of the Federal Republic, which deals exclusively with environmental
research. It is intended to build a new laboratory building with research facilities for the Department of Ecotoxicology and Environmental Technology at the science park. The contest entry [3rd prize] provides a cube with a slight twist in the axis of the campus structure that mediates between campus and city. So the laboratory high-rise builing creates a supra-local address and generates a clear prelude to the research campus at the same time. The building is arranged parallely to the road and faces the campus creating a square. This welcoming character is further emphasized by the slight recoil of the facade and a spaciously designed foyer. The laboratories and offices are located in clusters around the inner core and the communication zone and are flexibly furnished as open plan or cellular office.
