The 5 floor new build is a complex research facility with a variety of different uses. Twelve renowned working groups from several different professorial chairs will explore in this building technically relevant applications based on fundamental knowledge in the fields of optics and photonic technology.

The structure fits in with the surrounding campus buildings. The usable areas of the almost square, main body are organised around a spacious inner courtyard.

The outer appearance is characterised by a uniform sheath covered of textured fibre cement boards. The circumferential window strips wrap the building in an offset fashion thereby binding the different uses of the building together. The horizontal format of the panels, as well as the arrangement of the slender window bands, emphasise the horizontal structure of the building.
