The competition brief included complex specifications and the highest demands on functionality for the planning of a new building for physics/nanostructural sciences, which is to be realised as the first construction phase. An idea section was to be developed for the subsequent construction phases for the institutes of chemistry, biology and mathematics.
Seventeen selected offices took part in the competition.
In contrast to what was described in the competition brief, DGI Bauwerk’s entry located both buildings, the Institute of Physics and the NTC, on site A. The idea was that in future both the institutes of chemistry and biology and the mathematics building could be built contiguously on the limited number of sites. In order to achieve this, a very compact structure with up to 5 storeys and 2 inner courtyards was proposed for the Institute of Physics, which accommodates the entire room programme of the institute building.
Competition exhibition in the foyer of the Campus Center of the University of Kassel from 07.06.2022 – 27.06.2022
