On the inner-city plot south of Breitscheidstrasse between Kiene- and Buechsenstrasse was built the expansion for the   Architecture faculty Hochschule für Technik on behalf of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg. He should be a business card for the university as a distinctive inner-city mark.

The existing structure was taken up and extended out by varying their dimensions and distances succession of short bars to the south. The first phase consists of three by two glass joints combined bolt. The construction site could be completed with a second phase of construction by another two bars. It is also about a all parts of building defined and maintained accurately contouring base. Through the natural downward slope along the Breitscheidstrasse the base is emerging in full length and forms a solid basis. The eaves were taken over from the existing buildings in the Kienestrasse. This resulted in a possible up to four storeys building, that naturally adapt itself in the road space.

The new building is divided into three parallel bars with two connected glass or opening up clips. In the outwardly clear to be understood as both body stripes are all the rooms. Connected, the components on the ground floor by a wide foyer area that functions like an internal road. Downstairs there are more lecture halls, seminar rooms, the eventkitchen and the light laboratory. In the basement are the workshops and storage rooms. These have direct access to the maintenance depot. On the upper floors are located in the two western bars more seminars, lectures and computerized premises and in the eastern and the institute office of the dean. 


All materials (preferably concrete, glass, aluminum) are used and shown in their natural property. This is part of the architectural concept. The stylistic elements, the reduction to less ornamental elements and the judicious use of the materials lead to a peaceful atmosphere, which constitutes the appropriate framework for a flexible use of the building. The glas facade lying deep in the core insulated outer wall of exposed concrete are character elements of the facade. Blackout elements from aluminum fins protect the interior spaces from overheating. Same room depths in the brace of the building increase flexibility.
