Text description provided by the architects. The new Fraunhofer LBF Adaptronik transfer centre represents a new type of research location that is characterized by intense communication between dynamic work groups. Laboratories, experiment and test stations, workspaces as well as communication, show and seminar rooms interlock with each other in a way that allows the user to experience them as a single functional unit.

The borders are flowing and encourage knowledge and idea transfer between scientists and technicians, technology providers and clients. Adaptronik’s complexity, concerned with the development of self-adjustable structure systems, is reduced to its basic aspects: action and reaction. Irregularly perforated brass bond sheets that react to varying light conditions by changing colour transport this principle outward.The TZA was awarded 2nd place at the 2010 TECU Awards.
