The designer develops his building structure from the idea of composing “a new entity out of the Lehmann Institutes”. Three building volumes form an urban concept, incorporating Lehmann Center I into the concept. This solution helps to create a campus square which is convincing in functional as well as urban regards and which naturally defines the entrance to Lehmann Center II.
The two Lehmann institutes will form an ensemble. The “Digital Plaza” stretching between them is characterized by the high, widely radiating quality of its communal spaces.
The new Lehmann Center II and the existing Andreas-Pfitzmann-Bau form an L shape, their diagonal position defining the edges of this new campus, which in turn gives the site a new identity.
The two four-level volumes take up the slope by receding one storey. They are connected by a basement and situated at an angle. A glass hall connects the buildings, forming an attractive site for the Center’s central exhibition and communication spaces.
