TH Köln – Replacement Building on the Deutz Campus Building A (with parking garage), ongoing

Building A on TH Köln’s Deutz campus, along with parking garage P1 and the existing university library, forms the important southern edge of the future central campus quadrangle. Due to its location on the main ring road, it also defines the address / site of the new University. The new building must therefore mediate between the inner world of the campus and the outer realm of the surrounding urban context.


Our design is conceived as a reinterpretation of the construction volume envisaged in the master plan. Clarity and efficiency are established by modifying the geometry of the building structure. The aim is to create a characteristic site that is both specific and flexible, creating high-quality spaces to meet the creative and dynamic needs of a university fit for the future. The architectural means to achieve this are simple and robust, though subtly used, as visible in the fine tectonic gradations of the facades.
