PROJECT DETAILS

Kurt Schneider / Helmut Spieker / Günter Niedner: Campus “auf den Lahnbergen”, Philipps-Universität Marburg, 1961D–1977

  • Marburg, Germany, Show on map
  • #EDU #Public #Precast #ClusterStructure #Megastructure #Western Europe
  • The campus was built using a newly developed system which radically systematized and standardized all involved parts. It remained the only large scale project using this “Marburger Bausystem”.

  • Large parts have recently been demolished and replaced with new buildings. The lecture hall (images 1 and 3) however remains intact. The current masterplan for remodeling the site states that the buildings made of prefabricated elements are to be torn down. About the future status of the lecture hall, which is a monolithic construction of exposed concrete, there is no clear statement whether it will be renovated or demolished as well.
