After a preceding VOF procedure in 2011, kister scheithauer gross (ksg) implemented the new ‘Chemiepraktikum’ building for RWTH Aachen. The client is ‘Bau- und Liegenschaftsbetrieb NRW’. The monolithic building functions as a cornerstone of the existing development and is thus decisively contributing to the formation of a ‘prestigious address’ of the Chemical Institute. Laboratory areas of about 1,500 m² have been provided on a gross floor area of 3,720 m². Since April 1, students at the Institutes of Organic and Inorganic Chemistry of RWTH Aachen can now carry out research and experiments at 160 state-of-the-art fume cupboards.

Article source: studioMDA

The Center for Advanced Mobility is a ground breaking symbiosis between nature and technology, functionality and dynamic form, as it combines high-performance laboratories with the urban environment. Wind studies were used to develop the dynamic space of the building which provides an optimal wind flow for the Aachen inner city and a maximization of ventilation for the building.

More projects by Zaha Hadid

Existing contours and infrastructure act as the primary form generator for a new research building at RWTH University – producing a structure which works in symbiosis with the man-made and natural elements that surround it. A structure which harnesses regenerative energy techniques to produce more power than it consumes.

Aachenmünchener Headquarters in Aachen, Germany

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

Company headquarters in the inner city usually form blind spots, unattractive to the public and desolate after office hours. Therefore, the design is not understood as an architectural but as an urban task with the aim of maximizing public space on the building lot. With a number of plazas, a direct footpath from the main train station and the inner city and the integration of external uses, the area becomes more attractive to the public. The demand for maximum public use and communication dictates the internal organization of the building.

Aachenmünchener Headquarters

Aachenmünchener Hq, Aachen | Germany The annex occupies two blocks of late 19th-century city fabric, and provides a new interpretation of the typical perimeter development with its semi-public and leafy courtyards. The urban sequence of expansions and squares is extended by a perron and a plaza evolving from it. Existing and new buildings are connected by the “boulevard” which consists of a transparent level hosting seminar areas, a restaurant, a cafeteria, meeting rooms, and other communication areas. The boulevard floats above the various garden spaces inside the building block, and connects the office spaces, eventually opening up at the main entrance and the pocketpark, offering a representative face to the street.
