Transfer Center for Technology and Innovation of the Technical University

Deggendorf, 2018

The new construction of the Technology Transfer Center is the fifth building to form the keystone of the structural expansion of the Deggendorf University of Technology. It completes the chessboard-like ensemble of houses and squares that opens the university campus to the adjacent Danube. Functionally, it occupies the important interface of the university to the regional private sector. A building rises above a dark-colored concrete base, the exterior of which is clad with a horizontal band of black, through-dyed fiber cement panels. In these bands, windows are inserted flush with the outside, surrounded by strong frames. The floor-by-floor offset of this principle of order gives the building a sculptural universality. In keeping with the urban development concept, the building has two entrances from the two adjoining tree-lined squares, which are brought together in a central foyer. An atrium, which is routed over the entire height of the building, links the floors together and brings daylight deep into the building. The finely balanced dark coloration of the new building gives it a restrained noblesse, making it a natural part of the building ensemble of bush hammered black concrete.
