The Helmholtz Institute Jena is planning an extension to their existing building including offices and laboratories. The design by DGI Bauwerk and hutterreimann Landschaftsarchitektur, with the concept "Light and Matter”, was shortlisted after an open, single-phase competition.
In a restricted implementation competition DGI Bauwerk with
BE Berlin GmbH achieved in work together the 3rd prize.
The contest entry provides a cube with a slight twist in the axis of the campus structure that mediates between campus and city.
The cluster of excellence at the JGU Mainz Precision Physics, Fundamental Interactions and Structure of Matter‘ [PRISMA] is dedicated to research into basic questions about the nature of the fundamental building blocks of matter and their importance for the physics of the universe.
The design pays an esstial contribution for the site to become a prime address. The building integrates into the existing urban structure, is extendable and configurates an independent accent as a conclusion of the major structure.
The planning for the new Fraunhofer Institute IME is the first step towards creating the entree of the technology and industrial park Leihgesterner Weg right next to the natural sciences campus of the Julius-Liebig University.
The new construction will include a laboratory building for optical and physical measurements with connection to the existing institute building on the one hand and a new hall for epitaxy-equipment [MOCVD-Hall] on the other hand.
The urban planning principle of the competition entry by DGI Bauwerk is a village square. This idea is translated into the form of two separate building volumes.
