Garden Campus Vaihingen, 2016

There is an underlying principle to the pavilion structure of the IBM building by Egon Eiermann that can be found equally in modern as well as ancient structures: flowing space. This principle is also followed in the urban development concept for the proposed district. It is developed into a sequence of spaces that are connected with the surrounding landscape. New and existing buildings form a unit by repeating the dimensions and scale of the Eiermann buildings. The existing forest is considered one of the great qualities of the area. Consequently, the building sites are embedded in the surrounding edge of the forest and allow it to almost reach into the buildings.  Thus, the campus achieves  a distinctive identity.
