Federal Ministry of Education and Research

Germany

The 173m long ministry building curves along with the bends in the river Spree. IT consists of two main U-shaped parts, one for each of the Ministry’s main subjects, with a connecting middle section. The groundbreaking, BNB Gold certified sustainability concept, the modern office spaces overlooking the inner courtyard and the inspirational overall atmosphere make this building a worthy head office for ‘Education and Research’. The facade, with its natural stone, glazing panels and photovoltaic cells, is a fully integrated part of the detailed energy concept. Included in the PPP concession are financing, design, construction and operation of the building.
