Project Panel

One of the Institute’s main assets is the international visitors programme, offering around 1,500 guests per year the opportunity to participate in scientific events. Accommodation for the visiting scientists from around the world is now provided for in four guesthouses, set in park-like grounds, adding to the spaces in the Institute.

The workshops are of crucial significance for the research work at the institute and are internationally recognised. The Institute’s scientific success made an extension necessary.

» Tension and relaxation. Communication and concentration. These are pivotal terms for the Institute’s ways of working. «
Markus Hammes

From discussions with the users, in which they shared their experiences of the existing building, we drew many insights of how to design the spaces and structures required by the new building’s scientific international occupants.
