Böwer Eith Murken Architekten with the University building authority, 2011
The former printing works of the Herder publishing house – a 19th century industrial building – was renovated and converted for the University of Freiburg. The northern courtyard is covered by a transparent cupola roof supported by four treelike branched steel supports. This has maintained the impression of the imposing building and created a fitting entrance area for the university facilities.
To be viewed from the outside and inside.
